Our Feedback
Late July and I decided to replace a couple of plants in my flowerbed that are not earning their keep. I decided I want Fuchsias. I did a bit of research, decided on the variety I wanted and then tried to find some. Victoriana came up trumps and had the variety I was looking for, and offered reasonably priced mail order too. I was delighted when I received my plants. They are sturdy and bushy. They've been pinched back so there are lots of shoots. They were well packed and clearly were posted to avoid being in the post over the weekend in what was a very hot spell in July / August 2020. Arrived still moist and in fabulous condition. I am delighted with them. A teensy bit potbound, as to be expected at this time of year, but the lovely root system means I'm sure they'll get their roots out and grow on in no time. 100% satisfied customer; I would happily recommend Victoriana Nurseries to anyone wanting to buy a Fuchsia. These are the experts. Thank you!

Zea mays var. rugosa 'Minipop'

  • Pale yellow, sweet and crunchy babycorn cobs.
  • Easy to grow (no cross pollinating required as for other sweetcorn varieties).
  • Vigorous and very reliable habit.
  • Each plant can produce four or five babycorn.
  • F1 Hybrid.

Supplied as compost block grown plants.

Available from APPROXIMATELY mid May 2022

5 or more £0.85GBP each. Group & quantity discounts
Qty:

Each plant will produce four to five pale yellow babycorns that are best harvested when around 4" - 6" (10 - 15 cm) long (they get a little woody at the base if you let them get too big).

Unlike the dried up 'apologies for babycorn' you regularly find in the supermarkets you'll find your home grown to be crunchy and sweet, full of flavour - perfect for salads, stir fry's or steaming.

Vigorous in habit, these are reliable and easy to grow. And as you eat the cobs when they are juvenile there is no need to worry about growing in blocks to aid pollination.
