A Teosinte-Corn Hybrid,in the Stalk

The home of Teosinte is Mexico, and the plant there takes on a more or less tropical growth. It retains its tendency to giganticism when reared in northern climates; and such hybrids as this frequently attain a height of nineteen feet. The qualities of the wild and the civilized parent are curiously blended in the offspring.
