poaceae, gramineae family Zea mays

Popi-hopi pop corn

This small growing maize gets up to 40cm tall and forms small cobs of about 8 to 10 cm length. The seeds, which pop very easily, smell and taste delicious. Pop corn is the smart way of Native Americans to crack grains with little energy.

Seeding directly in the open land in rows with a distance of 40cm from the middle of May. Place a single corn every 10cm. Thankful for generous addition of compost. Keep weed-free. Harvest the ripe cobs in August. Air-dry the cobs really well. Deseed with your hands... And off we go!
