110 days — Also known as 'South American Yellow,' 'T.N.T.', 'Yellow Giant', and 'Sunburst', the stalks of 'Dynamite' popcorn reach about five feet in height and exhibit good root and stalk strength. Each plant typically produces ears that range between six to nine inches long and have twelve to fourteen rows of big orange-yellow kernels. It is not uncommon to harvest up to one pound of popcorn from a stalk. A high-quality popping corn variety that generally produces a mushroom (as opposed to the classic butterfly) shape when popped. The flavor has been described by many as lightly buttery.

When the Farmer Seed & Nursery Company of Faribault, Minnesota, introduced their strain as 'South American Yellow' in 1931, they described it as follows:
"Not offered as the product of any other seedsman or grower but as grown and produced for us by our own growers and sold as our own product. This new variety has taken the country by storm. It is a real Pop Corn sensation—pops the largest kernels of any variety—has a rich golden butter color—very fine flavor and is exceptionally crisp and tender."
Each ounce is approximately 130 to 140 seeds.
