If we can grow our own popcorn, so can you!

Delicious, beautiful and easy to grow, Italy Hill’s pearlescent white kernels often mature 2 ears per stalk. Long-selected in Maine and long stewarded by grain guru Anthony Boutard in Oregon, his daughter Caroline has been selecting this strain to thrive in the Finger Lakes at Italy Hill Produce for many seasons. Selection and regional co-adaptation at its best! Organic Italy Hill Popcorn is a perfect companion with pole dry beans and any vining winter squash.
