Heirloom and Open-pollinated seeds

Dakota Black Popcorn OG


Zea mays

Min Qty: 100 Seeds

Description: Compact, 4-6' stalks produce a single 4-5" ear each with 15 rows of dark burgundy kernals. As delicious popped as it is decorative!

Planting Instructions: 100 days. Direct sow in fertile soil in a location that gets full sunlight when soil temps are at least 60F. Alternately, start indoors and transplant when 3-6" high. In order to improve pollination, it is better to plant corn in blocks rather than in long individual rows. Corn is a heavy feeder, so amending soil before planting is beneficial. Sow 2 or 3 seeds in holes 1-2" deep with holes 12-15" apart. Thin seedlings to a single, strong sprout. Good companion for pole beans and squash. Start corn 2-3 weeks before beans and squash. Corn is a heavy feeder and benefits from a nitrogen-rich fertilizer and frequent watering.
