This is a remarkable miniature blue popping corn, growing to 1.5m tall and producing 4 to 6 small cobs per plant. A wonderful heirloom that is fun to grow and pops well.

Corn requires deep, well-drained, fertile soil with plentiful moisture. Beware, corn seeds will not germinate in cool conditions. Plant in blocks to encourage wind germination. The cobs are ready when corn silks turn brown or black.
