This open-pollinated (non-hybrid) variety produces one 5"–8" ear per plant with striking, purple-black kernels, on 4'–6' tall stalks. Let the ears dry on the stalks in late summer then harvest for decorating or for making popcorn. When popped, the kernels pop white but retain the dark color in the hulls, giving them a unique appearance. The flavor is delicious, hearty and crunchy. Many popcorns lack this richness, which gives Dakota Black the ability to act as a meal all by itself. Non-GMO. 90 Days, suitable for cooler climates. Non-GMO. 90 Days, suitable for cooler climates.
