Pennsylvania Dutch Butter Flavored Popcorn - Organic


Pennsylvania Dutch Butter Flavored Popcorn - Organic

Zea mays
(102 days) Open-pollinated. Popcorn so good on its own that you won’t need to add any butter. Our trialers agreed that it was the best they’d ever tasted: creamy, buttery and delicious. Incredibly green and healthy 8' plants with very long dark green leaves set two 4–6" stocky ears per stalk, with 26–28 rows (occasionally 22) of fat creamy white kernels. Thanks to our friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange for enabling us to offer this pre-1885 Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom. SESE was the first to bring this variety to commerce, in 1988.
