This Pennsylvania-Dutch heirloom is definitely worth saving, with a fresher, creamier taste than modern commercial popcorn. White kernels pop up big. Plants are robust 8-footers with deep green leaves. Two fat ears per stalk, on 4-6” cobs. Selected by the Pennsylvania-Dutch since 1885, and brought to the broader gardening public 100 years later by Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.
Popcorn needs to be very dry before it will pop properly. Leave ears on the plant until stalks dry if weather and varmints permit. Then shuck back the husks and hang the ears to dry more in a warm protected place.
