Introduce the delightful Strawberry Corn to your garden, an heirloom variety of Zea mays known for its compact and productive nature. Each Strawberry Corn stalk reaches about 4 feet in height and produces two or more unique, ruby-red, strawberry-shaped ears, each 2–3 inches long. This variety is not only functional, but also ornamental, with beautiful foliage that enhances the back of your flower border, adding height and visual interest.

At the end of summer, harvest these small ears for a fun and tasty popcorn treat. Kids and adults alike will be enchanted to watch the ruby red kernels magically puff up into white popcorn. Beyond its culinary uses, Strawberry Corn is perfect for fall decor. Its dried stalks and charming ears add a rustic touch to any autumn display alongside pumpkins, gourds, and other seasonal decorations. This versatile plant offers both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits, making it a cherished addition to any home garden.

Yellow Popcorn Corn thrives in full sun and requires no stratification. Sow the seeds directly outdoors at a depth of 1 inch in well-draining soil once the soil temperature reaches at least 60°F (15°C). Space the plants 9-12 inches apart, with 30-36 inches between rows. Keep the soil consistently moist during the germination period, which typically takes 7-10 days. Provide support for the tall stalks as needed, and ensure adequate pollination by planting in blocks rather than rows.
