The muhindi represent the number of our children and our future in which they embody. Display the muhindi next to your kinara on the mkeka. Our muhindi are cultivated from a select variety of outstanding seeds to produce beautiful, vibrant, and multicolored long ears of corn. They are naturally grown and will vary. The individual color cannot be requested or selected. If more than one is purchased, a variety will be sent. Each muhindi generally measures: 7”-8"(L).
On the Kawanzaa table, specifically on the mkeka, one ear of muhindi is placed on the mkeka to represent all of the children in "our" community. Still, for each family, an ear should be placed on the mkeka for each child in the family.
Proverb: Children are the wealth of a nation.

Due to nature, sizing may slightly vary. Our hand picked muhindi generally measure: 7”- 8"(L).
