Nal-tel

 

This is a landrace corn from Mexico that I grew in 2020 for the Michiana Heritage Corn Project. Along with Chapalote, Nal-tel is one of the oldest Mexican corn varieties. The seed was sent to me by Stephen Smith. I began harvesting mature ears at the end of September.

Here is some additional information from Biodiversidad Mexicana
