Strawberry popcorn update - silks turning red!

11 Jun 2011
32°C / 89°F

I knew that the kernels are supposed to be red, but I wasn’t expecting the silks to turn that color as well!

Another surprise: I’ve always thought of corn as a wind-pollinated plant, but the tassels sure are attracting a lot of round-bodied bees!

Pink silks surprised me last year, but I gather it is normal for lots of different varieties. I bet you can’t wait to see the ears!

You’re right about that! I’m not sure how long I’m going to have to wait – I’m eagerly examining the plants every day now. :)
