popcorn test …

Last year I grew a lovely multicolored popcorn (Calico) and had a pretty good yield. Unfortunately it didn’t pop. I tried hydrating it more and drying it more. But I couldn’t get any of it to pop.

This year, I went back to a plain old yellow popcorn, like one that’s worked for me in previous years. Not the same variety as earlier, but Johnny’s Seeds’ best recommendation. Robust 997. I had a small yield because of this year’s drought (and my inattention to watering).

Today is the day for testing! I just took it off the cobs and we’re warming up the Whirley-Pop. Will it pop???
