    Looks like heirloom popcorn. Don't know the variety. Can be popped or used for decoration.

    Does this kind of popcorn grow in the shape of a strawberry kind of?

    I believe you are both right. It is strawberry popcorn, a pretty neat seed and kinda hard to find.

    That is an alien space pod and you either need to bury it 20' underground or nuke it from space...it's the only way to make sure. I am probably already to late and your computer screen has gone blank.

    Test the germination rate by first placing a few kernels between damp/wettish paper towels and place in a plastic bag in a warm area. Some older corn doesn't germinate well. You might have to plant much closer if a poor germination rate.

    Might also check to maker sure it's "open pollinated" and not a hybrid. If it's a hybrid you'll wind up with one or the other parent and not the offspring. I'm pretty sure yours is OP.

    May I be the kind of person my dogs think I am,

    Strawberry Popcorn - Corn - Vegetables A-C

    I have grown the strawberry pop corn, it actually grew well for me. The picture you posted looks a bit more like the dakota black, which I think we are trying to plant this year.
