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? Beautiful color, small ears.

What are the cons? Didn't germinate well at first

Review:

Planted 12 stalks of this corn in the three sister style. Corn/Beans/Squash The first batch of corn only had a 45% germination but replanted and did okay. Unfortunately the second planting was behind the beans by too many days an it was not tall enough to support the beans, instead the beans smothered the small stalks. However the ones that did germinate the first go around did very well and supported the beans also. I love these colorful little ears. I'm going to use the prettier ones for fall d?cor and the rest are being popped. I will grow again for sure.

What are the pros? Taste and color

What are the cons? slow popping

Review:

I originally grew this so my wife could have small ornamental corn for fall decorations but I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor of the popped corn. They are slow to pop but the fresh flavor is worth the wait. Some ears are all red, black or yellow and many are multicolored. Small and easy to hang from the front door.

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 pros? beautiful and tastes good

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. .
