Dark reddish-black ears are quite attractive for fall decorations or popping into tasty popcorn! This variety is easy to grow and does well in almost all growing climates. Fun for children’s gardens.

What are the pros? 100% germination

What are the cons? Low producer

Review:

Corn, including popcorn, can be very difficult to grow in a small backyard garden. I've only really had luck when I had a decent chunk of land, with the ability to dedicate at least 100 sq feet to planting rows of it. That being said, popcorn was always a lower yield for me than sweet corn. So now that I'm growing in a small garden in an urban setting, I'm in for a bigger challenge. These kernels had a 100% germination for me. The stalks grew fast, but stopped once they reached 2.5 feet tall and put up tassels. I hand pollinated every stalk, every set of silk, over the course of several days, just to ensure pollination. Each stalk then produced ears, but only one produced a small ear with a nice kernel set on it. After drying, I separated the kernels and popped them. Most popped, which is nice, and the flavor was great. I'm trying it again this year, in the hopes that I can get a better yield. That handful of popcorn from last year's crop just wasn't enough.

What are the pros? Grows great, good germination,

What are the cons? Grew pointed rice-type kernels

Review:

This seed is great. I planted it 2 different years and it always grows better than any other type of corn I plant, the only weird thing was that I planted the round pearl-type kernels and the corn that grew was the pointed rice-type kernels. The seed was all bought at the same time, but both times I got the pointed kernels.

What are the pros? pretty kernels

What are the cons? didn't pop on the stove

Review:

The stalks and ears seemed to grow well, except for a few mutant ears. I left the ears on the stalks until they were brown, cured them for several weeks afterwards until the kernels fell off the cob. Unfortunately, I could not get it to pop on the stovetop :(

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

A member introduced this variety to our garden club. Now several of us are growing Dakota Black Popping Corn. It matures a little earlier than most varietis, is easy to grow, and has a wonderful flavor -- slightly nutty. Do not jump the gun and try to harvest too early. To maximize flavor and allow the kernel to seal for popping, be patient and let it dry down on the stalk.
