Each corn stalk produces 2 or more 2″–3″ long ruby red, strawberry-shaped ears on compact 4′ stalks. Beautiful foliage when used at the back of your flower border. At summer’s end, harvest the kernels for popcorn. The stalks are a nice backdrop to displays of pumpkins, gourds, and dried cobs. Botanical Interests’® Strawberry Popcorn Corn Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
This packet sows up to 16 ft.
Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 65°–90°F.
Indoors: Not recommended, as roots are sensitive to transplanting. Best results occur when seedlings are transplanted less than 2 weeks old.
What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
