Grown from organic seeds, this variety of popcorn is not only flavorful but also free from synthetic chemicals and pesticides. With its distinctive deep black kernels and rich, nutty taste, Dakota Black Popcorn is a gourmet delight that will elevate your popcorn experience.

Characteristics of Organic Dakota Black Popcorn:

  1. Unique Color: One of the standout features of Dakota Black Popcorn is its striking deep black kernels. These kernels, when popped, reveal a beautiful contrast between the black exterior and the white interior, making it visually appealing.

  2. Rich Nutty Flavor: Dakota Black Popcorn is prized for its unique flavor profile. It offers a richer, nuttier taste compared to standard yellow or white popcorn varieties, adding depth and complexity to your popcorn indulgence.

  3. Organic Certification: The seeds used to grow Dakota Black Popcorn are certified organic. This means that they are produced without the use of synthetic chemicals, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), or artificial fertilizers, ensuring a natural and wholesome snack.

Growing Organic Dakota Black Popcorn:

Growing your own organic Dakota Black Popcorn is a rewarding experience. Here's how you can get started:

  1. Select a Suitable Location: Choose a sunny spot in your garden or outdoor space with well-draining soil. Popcorn plants thrive in full sunlight.

  2. Prepare the Soil: Prior to planting, prepare the soil by amending it with organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure. This will provide essential nutrients and improve soil structure.

  3. Planting: Sow the Dakota Black Popcorn seeds directly into the soil when the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to around 50-60°F (10-15°C). Plant the seeds about 1 inch deep and 4-6 inches apart in rows.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering, as popcorn plants are susceptible to root rot in waterlogged conditions.

  5. Fertilization: Popcorn plants benefit from a balanced, organic fertilizer. Apply a side dressing of compost or a suitable organic fertilizer when the plants are a few inches tall.

  6. Maintenance: Popcorn plants typically require minimal care. Ensure they receive adequate sunlight, and watch for common garden pests, such as aphids or earworms. Implement organic pest control methods if needed.

  7. Harvesting: Dakota Black Popcorn is ready to harvest when the kernels have dried on the cob. This usually occurs when the plants are brown and the kernels are hard. Carefully remove the cobs from the plants and store them in a cool, dry place until you're ready to pop the kernels.

Ways to Enjoy Dakota Black Popcorn:

  1. Traditional Popping: Pop the Dakota Black Popcorn kernels in an air popper, stovetop popcorn maker, or microwave. Serve with a sprinkle of your favorite seasoning or a drizzle of melted butter.

  2. Gourmet Flavors: Elevate your popcorn experience by experimenting with gourmet seasonings, such as truffle oil and Parmesan cheese or chili lime seasoning.

  3. Caramel Corn: Transform Dakota Black Popcorn into a sweet treat by making homemade caramel corn. The dark kernels add a unique twist to this classic snack.

  4. Trail Mix: Incorporate popped Dakota Black Popcorn into your favorite trail mix for a satisfying crunch and rich flavor.

  5. Decorative Use: The deep black kernels of Dakota Black Popcorn can be used decoratively in crafts, centerpieces, or as a unique addition to gift baskets.

Planting & Care

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.

Some black, some not

This year was the first that I have grown this. I haven't tried popping any yet because it is still drying. Some of it wasn't black, it had a tinge of black/red on the knurls. We'll see how it pops after it is dried.
