Exemplore News reports, "Deep in the heart of the Mexican mountains grows an ancient species of giant corn plant that grows twice as large and has strange aerial roots that drip a slime that could revolutionize agriculture and end farming reliance on toxic chemicals. For centuries, possibly even longer, the indigenous farmers have cultivated this mysterious maize that oral traditions date as over 2,000 years old. 

"An agricultural scientist living in Oaxaca heard tales of this super-size corn that was about sixteen to eighteen feet high, which caught his attention since American varieties max out at ten feet or so. He describes seeing it for the first time as mythical, a seemingly impossible crop kept hidden by generations of farmers that was unlike anything he had ever witnessed previously."
