95-100 days. Add Black Dakota to your garden for delicious popcorn or as a stunning ornamental. Open-pollinated (non-hybrid) variety that produces 6' tall stalks with 1 or 2, 4"–6" ears per plant with striking purple-black kernels. Let the ears dry on the stalks in late summer then harvest for decorating or for making popcorn. When popped, the kernels pop white but retain the dark color in the hulls, giving them a unique appearance.
