  Ask a Question


The darkest colored corn known, it has a most delicious flavor and is believed to have one of the highest amounts of anthocyanins of any corn! The ancient Maiz Morado, also known as Kulli, originated in the Andes highlands of Peru. This is a special selection that has been bred for the past 20+ years in New Mexico to adapt to our North American latitudes and will grow and produce ears easily in most American gardens. This ancient corn is excellent as a flour corn or, picked young, as a flavorful sweet corn. It is also used in South America to brew a special and highly revered drink known as chicha morado. This drink had important ceremonial significance to the Incan Empire and civilizations before it. We love to make purple corn juice with cinnamon, clove and pineapple — a refreshing elixir bursting with antioxidants! Locals also use it to dye fabrics and cloth, and grind it into a beautiful flour/meal. as well. Grows to 8 feet or taller and takes 100 days or so to mature.
