Details

Zea mays is a giant grass cultivated on an industrial scale, as a source of many food products for livestock and humans.

Its seed is eaten fresh, cooked, fermented, puffed, in flour, semolina, etc., and provides oil and starch.
Its stems are a source of fiber (paper) and biomass, or used as fodder.
Its cob is a source of biofuel.

Zea mays has medicinal properties : Anticancer, Anti-warts, Cholagogue, Diuretic, Hypoglycemic, Hypotensive, Softening, Stimulating, and Vasodilating.

There is a very large number of Maize varieties, giving tall or small plants, ornamental or not, with long or short cobs, with yellow, blue, red, white, pink, orange, etc. seeds, and hybrids and GMOs of all kinds.

Corn comes in 3 categories of varieties : Flour corns (large seeds, hard and full), Popcorn corns (small seeds, hard and full), and Vegetable corns (big seeds, wrinkled when dried).

Inca Rainbow Maize is a sweet corn of the third category, grown for the consumption of fresh seeds in their milky stage, tender, sweet and delicious.
Its fresh cobs are harvested for grilling or for cooking.

Inca Rainbow Corn is a reproducible, non-hybrid, non-GMO variety developed from ancient varieties of native Indians in Peru and North America.
It gives a plant often branched from its base, 2 to 3 m tall, with 3 to 4 cobs per stem, 20 to 30 cm long, each bearing 10 rows of large white, pink, orange or blue grains, often mixed and decorative.
It yields early and abundantly.

Sow in place in May in an already warmed, moderately fertile to rich soil, after the last risks of frost, full sun exposure.
Space plants 30 cm apart and rows 70 cm apart.
Water in case of drought.

For a staggered harvest, sow every 15 days in May and June.
Harvest fresh from July.
