Description

Corn - Tom Thumb Popcorn - Zea mays

Tender Annual Heirloom. Tom Thumb is an extra early, open-pollinated popcorn which succeeds even in cold climates. The dwarf, 3'-tall plants with ears 3"-4" long are a fun crop for children to grow.

Did You Know? Tom Thumb's small ears make charming table ornaments when dried, and its small height will not shade other plants in your garden!

Soil & Water: Corn is a heavy feeder requiring high amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK). Its weak and shallow root system likes loose soil with a high compost content.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly outdoors 1 week after the last frost. You can start earlier by using black or green plastic mulches and floating row covers to obtain optimum conditions. Plant in blocks rather than rows to ensure good germination. To prevent cross-pollination, plant different varieties at least 500'.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the ears when husks have dried and kernels are plump, well-colored, and shiny. Husk and dry cobs in a cool, well-ventilated space. After one month, test-pop a few kernels every few days until successful. Remove kernels from cobs and store in dark containers.
