Firecracker Hybrid Popcorn

Great for Eating and Fall Displays

A great dual-purpose variety for popping and decorations. Firecracker Hybrid Popcorn has red stalks and leaves—and produces multicolored, miniature, 5-inch ears. Dry and shuck some of the ears for popping, and use some of the dried ears for fall decorations and centerpieces. For best results, direct sow corn seeds into the sunny garden after the soil warms up to 60 degrees F. To help with pollination, sow seeds in rows forming a square. 95 DAYS.
