Scrumptious baby corn as well as spectacular popcorn, we often harvest 8 to 12 ears of lusciously tender and sweet baby corn. Utterly unexpected and such a revelation compared to anything frozen or in can, hence the name…! and if we miss their baby corn stage, each ear matures into gorgeous popcorn, easily maturing even in short seasons.
Delectable diversity: Unexpected Revelations v.1 is part of Fruition’s See(d)ing the Change project, as are YOU! Together, we are sowing the world we dream of, where deliciousness and diversity are embraced, amplifying the beauty and abundance that is resistance as well as resilience. Learn more here!
Each plant of Unexpected Revelations v.1, like each of us, is a unique expression of deliciously never-before-seen corn! A cross of three varieties of baby and popcorn, Organic Unexpected Revelations is a delicious bridge moving beyond the industrial, fixed-trait plant expectations of our time. Unexpected Revelations v.1 (as in version 1!) is the first generation of the cross with many, many more to come! We save their seeds — so can you, we hope you do! — and so can your great-great-great grandchildren, too ~

Planting Method: Direct Sow Only
When to sow: Once soil temperatures are at least 65°F (mid-May to mid June) — seeds will rot in cooler temps. Successively plant every 1-2 weeks to extend your harvest window.
Sowing and seedling care: Sow 6” apart (or 2 every 12”), and watch out for crows who like to eat germinating corn! For well-filled ears, sow in blocks rather than rows. Resist removing side-stalk ’tillers’ from this variety as they often produce 3-4 ears per stalk.
Seed Depth: 3/4 – 1 inch Sun Needs: Full
Days to Germination: 4-7 days at 75°F; 10 at 65°F
Spacing after thinning: 12 inches; rows 30-36″ apart
Days to Harvest: 62-70 for baby corn harvest; 105-115 for popcorn
