DESCRIPTION

Organic Popping Corn (Popcorn) 

Organic popping corn is a type of corn (Zea mays everta) specifically bred for popping. Unlike sweet corn, popping corn has a hard outer shell and a dense starchy interior, making it ideal for popping when heated. The organic variety is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, adhering to organic farming standards.
