A colorful popcorn from the Cochiti Pueblo people of northern New Mexico. This beautiful popcorn has been listed as a disappearing food in the Renewing America’s Food Traditions by Gary Paul Nabhan. The Pueblo people have been known as expert farmers since time immemorial, and popcorn is a favorite pueblo food. Husking the thick, 6-7 inch ears is like unwrapping a little present; each one is colorful and unique. 6-10 foot tall plants.
