Zea mays, Vibrant Yellow-Orange Kernels, (F1) 110 days, Evidence of Popcorn has been traced back to ancient native American Tribes and although seldom grown in Northern Europe, popcorn can perform very successfully across most of the continent. 'Robust' is the best variety for adaptability across a range of climates and has bright yellow-orange kernels and is an exceptionally good eating popcorn with a thin hull for easy popping. Very productive with long ears on tall stalks.  It must be dried for 3 to 4 weeks before cooking but otherwise easy and fun to prepare. Popcorn should be kept away from sweetcorn to avoid cross-pollination. Height from 1.2 to 2 mtrs, Seed Count Approx - 12 avg
