Heirloom Blue Cónico Corn


Heirloom Blue Cónico Corn

from 4.00

Grown in the highlands of Atlacomulco in Estado de México, cónico has long been coveted for its application to tortillas--especially the blue varieties now endemic to the region.

Masienda’s partner grower, Armando, maintains a 5 hectare milpa that has been in his family for five generations (which is as far back as he can personally trace). Armando almost exclusively uses blue cónico for his tortillas at home, citing a more tender texture than any other color varietal he grows. The color also translates to the most brilliant blue of any other landrace we've worked with. It is a household favorite at Masienda, and one that has historically only been available in smaller quantities.
