Organic Chilean Green Corn


 
This is no ordinary corn. In fact, this is our favorite corn in mid-summer. The flavor is unlike any we've ever tasted: rather than an ear of sweet corn, Chilean Green Corn is rich, savory corn that will transform your idea of what corn is. Harvested in the 'milk' stage like sweet corn, we grill each cob and toss the kernels on tacos, salad, salsa, soup, eggs --- their succulent, savory flavor and juicy crunch compliments it all. And don't compost the cobs right away, either. The stock from these cobs is so rich and velvety, subtly sweet and deeply savory: Chilean Green Corn makes the best stock we've ever had, plant-based or otherwise. We've been selecting this variety for four years on our farm, refining its early maturity and making sure it will thrive for you, even in short seasons.

Chilean Green Corn is an entirely different corn than we had ever experienced. Also called 'choclo,' we first tasted this corn from the gardens of Bill Tracy and have since enjoyed it in South America where it is beloved in all the ways above as well as simply grilled and enjoyed as sweet corn, slathered in salted butter, lime and smoked chiles.

5 of 5 Chilean Green Corn August 19, 2020
Reviewer: Joe Anderson from Schoolhouse Branch Farm, Drayden MD  
I planted this corn for the first time this year. Excellent germination & plant vigor, with only minimal attention lol
My entire 40x40 patch of this corn was flattened flatter than a pancake by a microburst during Isaias. It’s now almost completely recovered, and I ate one of the big fat ears out in the garden today & it was delicious. Wish I could share the pictures of the before & after
I think this is a superlative corn & will be planting it again
