Corn/Popcorn 'Red Strawberry' (Zea Mays) - small (2-4cm long) red strawberry shapped ears are great for popping and beautiful for fall decorations. Grows as 12-15cm tall plants with 2-4 ears per stalk. Absolutely gorgeous looking, definitely an eye catcher. 100-105 days to mature. Super nutritious & delicious!
Growing: Outdoors, full sun. Fertile, well-drained soil, preferably rich in organic matter. Sow the seeds 2.5cm (1in) deep after the danger of last frost has gone. For tropical climates, plant during dry season. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long one. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8in) apart. Regular watering to ensure the soil is well moist (though not soggy!). Germination takes around 7 days. For companion planting benefits, plant corn with cucumbers, peas or pole beans. Plants that like shade also do well with corn. After the corn emerges, keep it moist and carefully remove the weeds. Additional organic fertiliser or compost is recommended, since corn is a heavy feeder.
