it's mid-november and the teosinte branches on the older plant are leaning down and the husks on the ears are splitting to allow the seed heads to shatter...a sure sign the season is over...i have seed for this variety in the freezer along with seed for zea mays there will be a couple of varieties out there next season...and if i can find a suitable spot out there i have seed for zea diploperennis as well...high time to start a a new stand of perennial teosinte...the younger plant still has green ears has been covered at night in hopes of extending its season to will be a race with the weather...i have collected seed from the shattering plant and will be attempting to produce another generation from these plants...more on that as germination tests begin in very early spring.
