A wise choice for popcorn lovers! Prolific 5'H variety bears 6-9"L ears; 2-3 per plant. When popped, the large yellow kernels produce a buttery tasting popcorn! Harvest can produce up to 1 lb. per stalk. Good stalk and root strength. At maturity the husks open which help to prevent the development of ear molds.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
