Flint/ Popcorn. A wide range of jewel-tone-colored kernels makes each ear unique and beautiful. 1-2 ears grow per stalk, growing 6-8” on the 8-10’ plants. The kernels can be popped or ground into flour, used for crafts, or turned into ornamental decorations (especially in the fall season and Thanksgiving!) Consider starting this variety indoors, as it has a long maturation period.

Growing Instructions

Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep, 4" apart after danger of frost has passed. Germination in 4-21 days.  For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows, 36-48" apart, instead of in one long row. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.
