Heirloom Blue Bolita Corn — Bolita Azul


Grown in the central valleys of Oaxaca, the bolita landrace has a storied history as the backbone of Oaxacan cuisine — specifically the tlayuda. Because of its dense, translucent starch, this varietal can support the large structure of the 13-15″ tortillas (tlayudas) without falling apart.

Unlike its lighter cousin with its crisp, bone white masa, this particular bolita will translate into solid blue masa with an earthy, grassy finish. (Blue corn tortillas also have more protein and are less starchy than their white counterparts.)

The bolita azul also makes for a colorful posole — thanks to the way it blooms into a perfect, puffy kernel during nixtamalization. Whatever the application, this varietal will give you a strong masa with a toothsome finish, ready for the messiest of burritos and tallest of tostadas.



MasiendaAll corn from Masienda is completely non-GMO grown on small farms using regenerative agricultural practices. It has never been treated with pesticides or fumigants.

Every heirloom corn varietal comes from hand-selected seeds preserved by farmers for hundreds (and sometimes) thousands of years, with the flavor and quality of the corn further perfected with each passing generation. Heirloom corn is nothing like the hybrid corn that makes up 99.9% of what we know in the US (even the organic stuff): it’s the OG superfood.
