Red joro corn was highly revered among many Indian tribes for its nutritional value and for its qualities in beer making. Maize soon obtained a mythical status: man was believed to have been created out of maize. There's a true wealth of different
heirloom maize cultivars which date back to those ancient times.

Maize can be precultivated indoors which considerably increases the yield. Otherwise simply sow from mid-April directly outdoors. The seeds should be planted about 2-3 cm deep and the distance between the individual corn stalks should be around 45 cm. When sown in "blocks", plants thrive better than in single unprotected rows.

Hint: why not try intercropping with beans, according to Indian tradition? The corn serves as a climbing aid for stalk beans and these in turn accumulate nitrogen in the soil. In order to harvest your own seed, select the earliest and most beautiful cobs and harvest these as late as possible. Also keep in mind that the wind carries maize pollen for almost a mile, so if you live close to a corn field, there's a real danger that your Indian Red maize hybridizes with genetically modified maize.
