Where Did Corn Originate

Report as

Indians, in central Mexico, grew corn from wild grass over 7,000 years ago. When Columbus came, Native Americans had already been growing corn for hundreds of years. Look here for more information: http://www.kycorn.org/kycgaprojects/education/corninclassroom/3beginning.pdf

Corn was being grown by the American Indians when the settlers landed here. The origin is not known but it is believed to have come from Mexico. You can find more information here: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/crops/corn.html
