    Default Red Strawberry Popcorn

    Morning all, I am looking for nice cauliflower seeds (regular white stuff please) and am hoping that someone would be willing to swap for some pretty cool red strawberry popcorn seeds that I just got from Thompson and Morgan.

    There's a few nice pictures of them here - Sweetcorn : Red Strawberry (Seeds).

    It is a popcorn plant (I always thought popcorn was dry sweetcorn but apparently not) that grows small little red heads of corn that look like strawberries! Possibly the most unnatural cross-breed mongrel of the vegetable world, but it looks pretty cool!

    Also if anyone would like to try them out who doesn't have cauliflower to swap, no need to swap, as I'm only new to this growing outdoors lark and fear that I won't have success, and would like to see other people's pictures! Also there's no way I'm growing 200 of these things!

    i'd love some Strawberry Popcorn seeds, if you have enough spare? I don't have cauliflower seeds, but I do have home saved Heritage peas (6ft!) either purple or green podded, lots of different french beans, some unusual/heirloom tomatoes... ~If you fancy any of those?

    Have sent you a PM. I've got some Cauli "All Year Round" (thanks Coreopsis) - far more than I can sow - if you'd like some.

    Hi,

    Thanks to all for the swaps and offers, I now have enough cauliflowers that I don't know what to do with them! Excellent!

    I still have a few more popcorn seeds left if anyone would like them.

    Hi All,

    I've send out seeds this morning for anyone who gave me their address. Please let me know if you don't receive them (allowing for delayed Christmas post), and if I don't have your address yet PM me and I'll send it on asap.

    Merry Christmas!
