80 days to harvest Zea maize

Looking deceptively familiar, Organic Chilean Green Corn is no ordinary corn. In fact, she is our favorite corn in the height of summer. Her 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: her succulent, savory flavor and juicy crunch compliments it all.

Organic Chilean Green Corn

80 days to harvest Zea maize

Description

Looking deceptively familiar, Organic Chilean Green Corn is no ordinary corn. In fact, she is our favorite corn in the height of summer. Her 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: her 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. 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. 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.

Organic Chilean Green Corn

Direct Seed: Corn needs 65+ F soil to germinate. Crows often eat germinating corn! Sow 6” apart (or 2 every 12”) thinning to 1 per foot, rows 30-36” apart. For well-filled ears, sow in blocks rather than rows. Harvest in fall when stalk & husks are gold & dry; peel husks back & dry out of the sun with fans for 2 weeks.

Sowing Date: Soil 65 F, mid-May to early June Seed Depth: 3/4 – 1 inch
