Oaxacan Green Dent
Oaxacan Green Dent corn stalks typically reach 2 meters tall and produce ears that are 17 to 25 centimeters in length. The large kernels have a smooth, shiny exterior with a characteristic dent that develops as the moisture escapes. They range in striking shades of green, from bronze tints to pea-green to emerald-green colors. The hardened kernels are then either left on the cob and used as decorations, or removed and ground into cornmeal for tamales and tortillas. Heirloom varieties, such as Oaxacan Green Dent have maintained their original nutty, rich and creamy flavors which are often lost in conventional varieties, bred for production rather than taste.
