黑珍珠玉米 Black Pearl Corn, Taiwan (mini size)

Top: Germinated sprout in wood box planter

I have bought some corn and saved one cob to see if i could grow them. Seeds saved in 2014. 
 As seeds could get old - so I try to germinate them.  I tried in 2015, 100% failure.

This year, by accident I found a small bag with more seeds from the same cob, so I try to germinate them by soaking and rinsing - the usual way, and normally it works v well.

This year, maybe I had 100 seeds?  Only 3 grew roots.  So I will see if they actually get to the reproduction stage!  :)
