(Zea mays) (aka Hulless, Dwarf Rice, Squirrel Tooth) An
ornamental popcorn bred by the late Professor
Elwyn Meader at the University of New Hampshire.
Dwarf 3½' plants produce 1-2 ears each that
measure up to 4" long. Good for coastal and
short-season areas. 85-90 days.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost
has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant
in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin
seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does
best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.
