Flor del Rio
A beautiful mix of yellow, red, black, blue, white, chinmark, brown, and orange kernels on small ears (4-6 inches). Similar to the small decorative cobs sold in craft and grocery stores during the holiday season. Pops into a small, tasty white popcorn. One interesting quality of this variety is that it produces many plants with deep purple/burgundy stalks and husks. This variety contained the highest concentrations of health-promoting carotenoid and anthocyanin pigments based on recent nutritional analysis of maize from the NS/S collection. Collected in Velarde, New Mexico, along the Rio Grande. Plant height is ca. 6-7 ft. Approx. 7g/50 seeds per packet.
