Popcorn, Early Pink Pearl

$3.80$95.00

Zea mays. Popcorn. 90 days.

Early maturing, high yielding, and very tasty, and with a range of captivating pink colors to boot! Early Pink Pearl is the perfect complement to Dakota Black. The 4-6” ears are very ornamental and range from dark purple- pink to a light pink pearl tone. Easily matures in our climate. Small popped kernels are a very light yellow with a mild flavor, not as hearty tasting as Dakota Black but more flavor than store-bought yellow popcorn. Selected from an early pink variety originally grown by Lonesome Whistle Farm in Oregon.

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.
