100 days. A beautiful blend of brightly colored long ears (5”-7”), wonderful for fall decorations, and is great for popping. This beautiful corn was selected by Carl Barnes, a world-renowned Cherokee corn collector from Oklahoma.

What are the pros? Delicious, beautiful

What are the cons? None

Review:

Each stalk of corn produces a different variation of colors, from all one color, to two or three colors to several colors on one cob. Unwrapping each ear was like opening a small, beautiful gift. We have popped two of the cobs. One popped almost entirely to full size pops (with just a few partial pops), and not one kernal was left unpopped—it was the best popcorn I can recall tasting. Popped in refined coconut oil, it had a buttery flavor even without butter. The second cob we popped (which had a different color scheme than the first cob), was still quite delicious, perhaps on par with flavor, but while almost all the kernals did pop, they did not pop as fully, many being half popped. Not sure if it had to do with my overheating the pan on this second popped ear of corn, or if something else was a factor. Either way, I'm hooked—plan to grow popcorn from here on out. As I write this, this variety is no longer available through rareseeds. So I'm going to be sure and save my own seeds.

What are the cons? shelling can be difficult

Review:

I've never grown popcorn -- or much corn of any kind. I was pleased with the yield and quality of this variety. I planted the Cherokee corn Indian-style in hills, not rows, and mixed in pole beans and squash. Nearly every seed germinated. The corn plants grew about six feet high and each produced two -- sometimes three -- 6 inch long and slender ears. Shelling some ears by hand was difficult as a few ears had sharply-pointed kernels that even drew blood. But, it was worth it when I tried -- with low expectations -- to pop it. Amazingly it popped and maybe it's my imagination but it seemed to taste a lot better than microwave popcorn. The little ears ranged in color from all yellow to all black with every variation in between and shades of blue, brown, and burgundy. I lost a lot of my crop to relatives and friends who took handfuls of the unshelled ears for decoration. Nothing could be prettier than this corn. .

Review:

So happy we tried this. We are in zone 6b. I actually started these in the house in mid April and set them out the first week of May. We had a freeze about a week after that but I covered them and they survived! 100% germination rate, produced fast and got about ten to twelve feet tall!! 2/3 cobs per stalk and I DID hand pollinate by shaking each stalk several times after they tassled out. Will definitely plant again next year and give away any seed we don't eat!!

Review:

I grew this organically at Toledo Botanical Garden in our vegetable garden display which only gets about 5 hours of sun during the prime part of our growing season. It produced wonderfully! The diversity of color in this variety is remarkable. It pops firm and well. I brought it home to see if it past the taste test... my kids and I have selectively saved seed as my family and I decided this was a mainstay.
