Add ‘Dakota Black’ to your garden for delicious popcorn or as a stunning ornamental. This open-pollinated variety produces 5- to 6-inch ears with striking, purple-black kernels, on 4-foot tall stalks. Let the ears dry on the stalks in late summer, then harvest for either decorating or for making popcorn. Kernels pop white but retain the dark color in the hulls, giving them a unique appearance.
