Crimson Popping Corn
Nearly hull-less and 100% delicious, this rare and wonderful popcorn pops up as white as snow and delivers a flavor like no other! The perfect contrast to bland commodity popcorn and its cardboard texture.
Not available for shipping to Canada.
Comments from a few of our fans:
"My favorite is Rancho Gordo red crimson popping corn. (I wish it popped red, but sadly it turns white with heat.) I haven’t been able to get it for an entire year, but I just discovered that it’s back in stock, and I can't stop making it. This is popcorn with minimal husk, and it actually tastes like corn. Pop it on the stove-top in a little neutral oil, drizzle with real melted butter, and finish with smoked paprika and salt. Or grate some Parmesan or cheddar cheese over the top (it clings). Refreshingly straightforward. Totally addictive."
