Popcorn, Dakota Black (Organic)

$3.80$75.30

Zea mays. Popcorn. 90 days.

One of the earliest maturing and easiest to grow popcorns. 4-6” ears on 6′ tall plants. Dark black kernels have a ruby-red glassy shine when held in the right angle of light. The pointy kernels pop bright white with a small black hull still attached. The flavor is delicious, hearty and crunchy. Modern popcorns lack this richness, which gives Dakota Black the ability to act as a meal all on its own. Developed by the Podolls of Prairie Road Organic Farm, seed growers in North Dakota. Aka, Dakota Black Pop.

Seed produced by Lonesome Whistle Farm in Junction City, Oregon.

Choose An Option...

Corn does best when direct sown 1” deep, spaced at 18” centers. Plant when danger of frost has passed, after soaking seed overnight. For optimal pollination plant in blocks of 100. Harvest dry corn when husks are brown. Pick cob, fold husk back, and bring inside to dry completely. Remove kernels by rubbing two cobs together or with a mechanical corn sheller. Test for dryness with a hammer; dry kernels shatter and moist ones squish.

Seed Saving

Isolate from other corn varieties by 1/2 – 1 mile or two weeks for time isolation.
