This is the original 8-rowed flint corn developed by the ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica and worshipped by civilizations such as the Zapotec and Maya. It is the SECOND OLDEST corn in the world and alongside Maiz Chapalote, is the ancestor of ALL modern corn. This landrace is about 4,000 to 5,000 years old and we are offering the purest strain outside of governmental collections.The small, pale yellow cobs grow on short plants in the tropics, but stalks will shoot up to 12 feet tall in the United States with 2 or 3 cobs per plant.Our strain has been acclimated to the North American daylengths, so our Nal-Tel should be easy to grow in most parts of the country in Zone 6 or warmer.Due to its productivity and high protein content Nal-Tel became the cornerstone of ancient Mayan cuisine and is still used to make traditional grits, cornmeal, tortillas, atole, and pozole. 90-100 days.
