85 days — 'Japanese Hulless' popcorn is quite dwarf in habit with plants only reaching about five feet in height. Each stalk produces two to three ears that are short and thick, about four inches in length and two inches in diameter. Kernels are arranged irregularly on cob and are unusually tender, sweet, and pure white when popped.

Over the decades, 'Japanese Hulless' has also been sold as 'Tom Thumb', 'Australian Hulless',[2] and 'Dwarf Baby Rice'. Its exact history has been elusive but searching our horticultural library, it began appearing in most of the old seed company catalogs by the early 1920s. The earliest listing that we have found to date is its introduction in the Livingston Seed Company's catalog in 1918. They listed it as "Livingston's Tom Thumb or Japanese Hulless,"* declaring:
"A new dwarf growing Pop Corn, heavy yielder, attractive ears peculiar in form, deep grains and almost free from hull when popped. Excellent quality."[1]
Because of its excellent attributes, it has not lost its appeal to home gardeners. Each ounce is approximately 170 seeds.
