A little about this plants whakapapa,---- Corn has been a part of human life for around 10,000 yr.
The sweet type has been selected for maybe as long and appears in maize starch varieties spontaneously due to a recessive mutation that regulates conversion of sugar to starch.
Because sugar turns to starch soon after harvest open pollinated sweet selections like this one dont have the commercial shelf life of several weeks like the modern hybrid varieties and the seed is quite rare. However for home gardening they are ideal, still the real corn flavour and super sweet and crunchy if you eat it right away and the seed can be reliably saved indefinitely. A very strong growing plant in weedy soils and very stable in the wind, produces 2-3 cobs a plant, ideal for raw corn, roasted corn, corn on the cob, preserved sweetcorn etc.

It’s also possible to green up the deserts and influence the climate simply and cheaply by using natural seeding methods .
