(white at edible stage) 76 days. [Introduced 1864] Black Mexican is a time-honored New England sweet corn. Despite its name, it appears to have originated in upper NY, and was probably derived from Iroquois Black Puckers sweet corn. The name may have been given by a seed company attempting to provide novelty to its seed offerings, a practice not uncommon in the late 1800s. The kernels, white at milk stage, change to bluish-black in the late milk stage, but the flavor is exceptional. 5-1/2' plants. Ears average 7-1/2" x 1-1/2", typically with 8 rows of kernels. Harvest several days before kernels show color to several days afterwards. Although adapted to New England, it does well as a second early variety in the South.
