'Dakota Black' is and old, Native American variety with dark seeds. The colour usually is a very dark, warm red and, therefore, it's a very special, great maize variety. It's perfectly suitable for the preparation of popcorn.


Also the prepared popcorn from this variety is very uncommon in its looks, of course, as the puffed grain looks white with a dark red bottom and skin residues. The corncobs should be dried well after the harvest so that the single grains can be processed well later.

Maize can be precultivated indoors which considerably increases the yield. Otherwise simply sow from mid-April directly outdoors. The seeds should be planted about 2-3 cm deep and the distance between the individual corn stalks should be around 45 cm. When sown in "blocks", plants thrive better than in single unprotected rows.

Hint: why not try intercropping with beans, according to Indian tradition? The corn serves as a climbing aid for stalk beans and these in turn accumulate nitrogen in the soil. In order to harvest your own seed, select the earliest and most beautiful cobs and harvest these as late as possible. Also keep in mind that the wind carries maize pollen for almost a mile, so if you live close to a corn field, there's a real danger that your Dakota maize hybridizes with genetically modified maize.
