100 Days to maturity. Zea mays. Blue Hopi Corn Seeds. Non-GMO, annual, open-pollinated, heirloom, Flint and Flour Corn. Suitable for growing in garden plots or raised beds. Corn tolerates heat and drought-prone regions. Blue Hopi is known for its large, blue ears (8-9 inches) with a sweet flavor. While this is sweet corn when harvested young, it is most commonly used as a flint and flour type when it is ground for a blue corn meal used for tortillas, corn chips, or blue cornbread. Its blue color also makes it highly decorative. Contains 20% more protein than other varieties of corn. ~150 seeds/oz.
Begin by sowing directly outdoors, 1 1/2 inches deep with four inches between seeds and thirty inches between rows. When choosing a site in your garden, keep the sun in mind; these tall stalks have potential to block the sunlight from other plants. While growing, the crops will need one to one and a half inches of water. When the kernels are firm, the ear is ripe. To harvest, firmly pull the ear downwards while twisting. The unhusked ears can be kept in the fridge for up to one week.
Not usually eaten as sweet corn, but it can be eaten as a sweet corn if picked when young and eaten soon after picking. Most commonly ground for blue corn meal used for tortillas, corn chips, or blue cornbread. Contains 20% more protein than other varieties of corn. Prepare soil with compost and plant a week after the last frost. Avoid planting near tomatoes but okay to plant near peas, cucumbers, and pole beans. Weed regularly. Consider laying mulch over the top to help control weeds. Wait til stalk and leaves are completely brown before harvesting. Stalk may need to be dried indoor if in a humid area.
Flint - Flint corn (commonly called Indian Corn) gets its name from the hard outer layer on each kernel. Flint types are not typically eaten like sweet corn, but some do like to harvest Hopi Blue early and eat as you would a sweet corn. It can also be ground into flour to make various corn-based foods. Often very colorful and commonly used as an ornamental decoration.
