What are the pros? taste, color, short

What are the cons? weak stalks

Review:

I've had pretty good success with these. In 2015 I tried companion planting these with runner beans and a mini acorn squash, and I had reasonable success. However, these aren't tall enough or sturdy enough to really support pole beans. I wound up tying the stalks in bundles so they could hold each other up. The stalks are spindly for me. Maybe it's because my soil is poor. But they produced multiple ears each and tasted great popped! Beautiful pure white popcorn. In 2016 I grew them in rows and had less success. Not great germination from the seeds I'd collected in 2015, stalks still spindly, and less production. Then I caught a skunk eating the lower ears! Still, they're great for a compact garden, so I'll do some research and try again in 2017. I'll have to buy seed.

Fun to pop or for fall d?cor. This little corn grew great. This is my second season growing it. It keeps well after harvest; that I was popped leftover 2015 corn this week to make room for the new crop.

So pretty

What are the pros? Great harvest in a small area

What are the cons? kernals small for popcorn

Review:

Great harvest with little area. So very pretty! I wish I had used them all for crafts. I removed the kernels to make popcorn but the end result was about 1/4-1/3 the size of the Jolly Time Organic popcorn I usually use. Taste was good but I felt the texture lacked "fluff" and body.

What are the pros? Cute, grows easily, yummy

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the first time I tried growing popcorn, and it was a great success. Grew easily, each stalk produced multiple ears of cute red corn. And it's such a treat to enjoy homegrown popcorn in winter. A little olive oil and sea salt and it's perfect...no need for butter.
