Cateto Orange is an heirloom variety of corn, originally hailing from South America. Traces of its genetics are found in many commonly grown modern varieties of maize today. While popularly grown in Argentina and Brazil in the late 1800s, a version of it made its way to Cuba in the early 1900s, where it became known as Maiz Argentino or Especial.
Because of its relatively low soft-starch content, as well as its rich orange color, Cateto is ideal for cornmeal and polenta.
Our current crop is grown by Bob McDonald in nearby Bedford County, PA (non-GMO acreage).
