Multi-coloured with red, blue and white kernels in varying combinations. Anasazi means "ancient one". For sweet corn, eat when young and still yellow. Once it matures past these yellow, milky kernels, it will change colour and dry out, becoming wonderful for grinding into corn grit, or finer into flour. Very drought resistant and handles poor soils. Plant in blocks of 30 plants to ensure successful pollination. 2-3 cobs per plant.

Nutritious summer vegetable, originating from the Americas. Whilst open pollinated sweet corn is recorded as having significantly higher mineral and protein content (see ECO FARM page 38 - Charles Walters) and are tasty : they are not as sweet as the sickly sweet hybrid supermarket varieties of today. Very heavy feeder. Requires good soaking in dry weather. Grow as Maize and harvest as soon as silks turn brown. To save seeds, plant each variety at least 2 kilometres apart or at least at one month intervals to prevent cross pollination. Keeping varieties pure and saving seed is now very important. Sow after frost. (We cannot send to W.A. or Tasmania, check your local Eden Seeds outlets for Sweet Corn). 4-7 seeds per gram
