Amish Butter Popcorn

A pre-1885 heirloom popcorn maintained by the Pennsylvania Dutch. It is noted for its excellent popping ability and natural buttery flavor. Eight-foot plants yield 2 four-to-six-inch long ears of creamy white, buttery flavored kernels in 26-28 rows per cob. Very delicious! Purported to be multi-purpose as well, making excellent polenta, masa, and flour. It was first brought into the heirloom commerce world in 1988 by Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

Review:

Very satisfied with this popcorn. Only has any butter flavor if you convince yourself before eating it that it tastes like butter. Nonetheless a fun and easy-to-recommend popcorn. Grew well in the southeast. Our field had heavy disease pressure (mainly grey leaf spot and southern corn leaf blight) but this variety was relatively unaffected. Large ears for a popcorn; wimpy tassels for a popcorn. Nonetheless we had good pollination. Some fusarium ear rot, but milder than many other heirloom varieties. Occasional purple or yellow kernels even in deliberately self-pollinated ears. This popcorn was pollinated by a handful of non-popcorn flint varieties in our field and the result was beautiful striped kernels, so maybe we'll release a striped popcorn at some point in the future. Pops up spectacularly well for an heirloom. Expansion ratio is less than you get from modern popcorn but in several attempts I've had zero unpopped kernels! Looking forward to growing this again.
