Heirloom Popcorn dates back as early as the 1800's. It is GMO-Free, usually grown organically and is seeing a rise in popularity for it's health, taste and thin hull benefits.
Heirloom popcorn varieties have not undergone any form of genetic modification. This is good news to people who are worried about the effects of genetically modified foods.
heirloom popcorn varieties have unique flavors unlike GMO varieties that taste more or less the same if not bland. Remember most GMO varieties tend to pop/produce larger and fluffier popcorn. This means they do not offer much in terms of flavor because they have been purely bred for commercial purposes.
Heirloom popcorn farmers try as much as possible to grow their crops organically. This means they do not use pesticides that could harm/pollute the environment, which is good news for environmentally conscious consumers.
Although heirloom popcorn varieties have remained unchanged for years, they come in a wide range of colors. This does not mean they retain their natural colors once popped. They take on a whitish or yellowish color.
Farmers can replant seeds from this type popcorn and expect great/normal yields. In comparison, GMO varieties do not reproduce well over time. Usually, farmers have to buy fresh seeds to plant the next season.
All products are grown using traditional organic practices.
This tasty hulless heirloom variety is very light and fluffy, with a clean, nutty finish. This small-yield, difficult to grow popping corn is a real treat when available.
