100 to 105 days — Ranging from five to eight inches in length, 'Calico' ears are larger than our 'Miniature Colored' popcorn but larger than 'Indian Ornamental' corn. The kernel coloration, combinations, and markings can be very diverse. Multi-colored kernels in reds and yellows seem to be the most common, but ears can also produce brown, black, green, blue, pink, and orange, or any shades of these colors.

'Calico' popcorn ears are quite attractive, ornamental, and popular for "country decorating," dried arrangements, fall decorations, bird feeders, wreaths, and other crafts. 'Calico' also pops great and tastes good, with a slightly nutty flavor. Each packet contains 0.5 ounces, which is approximately 160 to 170 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Soil must be at least 65ºF to germinate. Be patient and do not plant too early or you will waste a lot of seed! Plant in full sun and keep it watered. Corn is a wind-pollinated plant. Plant in blocks several rows wide to ensure full ears.

Sow seeds about 1½ to 2½ inch deep, 3 to 4 inches apart, in rows spaced 24 to 30 inches apart. Thin to 6 to 12 inches apart.
