Product description

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - Seedstock from Merlyn Niedens, combining several strains of long-ear Cherokee popcorn sent by Carl Barnes of Turpin, OK. Carl has helped save many of the Cherokee corn that came west over the Trail of Tears. Small kernelled variety makes surprisingly large pops, yielding for a low hull/ corn ratio. Great flavor. Highly ornamental, 5-7 in. ears have many shiny colors including red, blue, orange, white, and yellow. 6-8 ft. plants.

  • Certified Organic 
  • Heirloom 
  • Especially well-suited to the South-East 
  • From Small Farms  

    Instructions - Requires a soil temperature of 65 degrees F to germinate well. Succession plantings can then be made 2-3 weeks apart. Harvest and dry popcorn down as you would grinding corn. Thorough drying is important in getting kernels that will pop. Popcorns are resistant to ear damage by birds. 

    • Sow seed 1" in deep 
    • Rows: 36 in" apart 
    • Thin: 6-12 in. apart
