(Zea mays) 80-114 days. A beautiful and unique variety used for gourmet popcorn as well as neat looking fall decorations. Kids love growing Strawberry Popcorn for its unique strawberry shape and color, and they love watching it pop, turning from ruby red to a delicious fluffy white snack! Plants grow to about 4′, producing 2-4 ears each. Ears grow to 2-3″ with irregularly spaced kernels. This variety is also used for edible sprouts, why not grow your own sprouting seeds this year. Sprouting them is easy, and you get an excellent corn flavor, with all the health benefits of home grown sprouts. Delicious and nutritious! Easy to grow, and because of the small size some even grow Strawberry Popcorn in tubs or containers.
