Popcorn Corn

Popcorn Corn Seeds

Grow your own nutritious and healthy snack. This variety of corn is perfect for popping, it can also be used to grow baby corn for use in Asian dishes.

Corn responds well to extra compost when sowing. Harvest when kernels are hard and husks are very dry. Remove from cobs and test dryness by popping some. If they test well, prepare remainder.

Hint: Store in a dry cool spot away from moisture and insects.

Health & Culinary Notes

  • Great source of dietary fibre.
  • Dried corn makes for a healthy white fluffy popped treat. Or be a bit naught and add some butter, salt or icing sugar.
  • Harvest young corn for use in stir fries and many other Asian style dishes.
