Dear Tobias:

If I can understand the words one by one, Granos has to do with grains and
the word `acuminados' can be understood to do something with the word
`ACUTE' which means pointed.  Althouogh I don't understand much of
Spanish, combining both should have something to do with the shape of the
grains.  Possible that they call maize "granos acuminados" because of its
shape:-pointed towards one end.
