85 to 95 days — 'Early Pink' is a very early popcorn variety which should allow it to mature in higher altitude and northern locations. Its grows to about five feet in height and produces one to two ears per stalk. The ears range from five to seven inches in length producing beautiful, pink to mauve to light purple colored kernels and often have a pearly appearance. A small percentage of ears will be "bearclaw" shaped; another interesting characteristic of this variety.
The ears are quite attractive, ornamental, and popular for "country decorating," dried arrangements, fall decorations, bird feeders, wreaths, and other crafts. 'Early Pink' 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.
