Corn Popping Mini Black
GENUS: Zea SPECIES: mays
Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Hawkes Bay
Number of Seeds: 50
Description: This corn is worth growing for its ornamental value alone. The 6cm cobs are pearly blue black and everyone who comes in here walks straight to this corn. A great crop for the kids to grow as it is also great popcorn. Like most other popcorn cultivars, it is a relatively low growing corn with many tillers (stems) that produce multiple cobs.
Planting Instructions: Scatter sow seeds into trays and transplant when 3.5cm high and soil temperatures reach 15-16 degrees C. Plant at 30cm apart in rows 50cm apart, deeply to cover leaves, and if necessary cover from birds.
