Our Feedback
Dear Victoriana Team, After a long wait my Samphire plants have finally arrived and I am so impressed I immediately wanted to order some more. Oh and by the way, thank you for packing all of your plants so well. Even though it is quite frustrating to sieve through all the shredded newspaper and then trying to dispose of it with bits blowing all over the place(especially with bigger plants), your system really works and seems to be the best way of protecting the plants. I have had some bad experience with other garden centres before and actually vowed never to buy plants online again, yet you have really managed to convince me that it can be quite safe. Thank you very much.

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 early May NEXT YEAR

5 or more £0.85GBP each. Group & quantity discounts
Currently Not Available to Buy

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.
