Zea mays. Domesticated by Meso-Americans along the Rio Balsas of Mexico by at least 6,700 BC, corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Various kernel colors are selected for ceremonies and feast foods, and pollen is collected for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.
These kernels may be of either a hard, flinty texture or soft and floury. When dry, flints generally store better and have greater resistance to insect damage. Approx. 18g/50 seeds per packet.
