Description

'Corn, Maize- Blue Mini Popcorn' seeds

Zea mays

NOT TO WA, TAS OR NT

  • Small blue coloured cobs
  • Great for popping

Popular variety for growing for use as popcorn. Small plants reaching 1-1.2m in height producing multiple cobs per plant. Cobs are between 5-10cm long and covered in small blue kernels. 

Corn cobs need to remain on the plant until the husks are completely dry before harvesting. This is important to allow the corn to develop the coloured kernels. Once harvested the husks should be removed and cobs need to be air-dried for a week or two prior to being popped. 
*Cobs may have some red and cream coloured kernals

*Notes: Grow in multiple rows rather than one long row so plants can easily pollinate each other. Do not allow to cross pollinate with other varieties

Ratings & Reviews

Corn, Maize- Blue Mini Popcorn

Great mini popcorn variety to grow. 3 -4 mini cobs per plant. Chose a mini variety as I was growing it in a windy location, and it held up well. Fantastic popping % once dry, colour of cobs (kernels) is cool, and the kids (and adults) love eating it! Will be growing this one every year from now on!
