Teosinte





What about "Teosinte," its food value, method of culture, and

adaptability to our climate, character of soil required?



Teosinte is a corn-like plant of much lower growth than Indian corn. It

may be of value as a forage plant on low, moist, interior lands in the

summer season. It is very sensitive to frost and is, therefore, not a

winter grower. It abhors drought and, therefore, is not a plant for

plains or hillsides. It was grown to some extent in California 25 years

ago and abandoned as worthless so far as tried.
