Maize is a plant known only in cultivation, it is native to the American continent and has been cultivated in it for about 10.000 years, highlighting its importance as food in almost all American indigenous communities from Canada to Patagonia. Between the Mayas, the Aztecs and the Incas.
The origin and evolution of maize has been a mystery, because maize has come to us highly evolved, without knowing intermediate forms. Despite extensive searches of the wild forms of this plant, it has not been found.
