Very old Native American maize variety with green grains that was cultivated by the Zapotec in Mexico.

Cobs can be eaten well in milk ripeness. However, traditionally you let the mature fully, dry afterward, and grind flour out of them. That green flour is being used for tamales and tortillas.
This variety originates from the province Oaxacan in Mexico.

Sowing & cultivation
Indoor pre-culture (seedling stage):
Sowing time outdoors:
Sowing depth:
2 – 3 cm
Best germination temperature :
18 – 22 °C
Planting distance:
30 x 50 cm
Main harvest:
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 cornfield, there's a real danger that your Oaxacan Dent Corn maize hybridizes with genetically modified maize.
