I personally think this corn is prettier than Glass Gem and is certainly more useful. Oaxacan Green Dent makes a stunning display as an ornamental, but it is quite well known for its great flavored cornmeal. This ancient corn has always been grown by the Zapotec Indians of southern Mexico, but is Quite rare in the mainstream garden. Oaxacan Green Dent should be preserved for its unique color, drought resistance and flavorful properties. I am imagining some green corn tortillas are in someone’s near future.
