I decided to grow corn in the garden this summer. It seems that corn has a place in a proper crop rotation and I could use the husks for tamales. I decided to try popcorn. Today I finally tried it.
The variety I grew was supposed to be pink. The corn silk was pink but the kernels are definitely not pink. They may have cross pollinated with the Bantam corn that I planted 2 weeks later but still overlapped a little in tasseling.
But it pops! And it tastes like popcorn!
