Where Does Popcorn Come From?
Is popcorn the seeds that grow the corn stalks? If so, where are the seeds on the stalk?

From the corn's nostril. That's why it's crunchy. Just like boogers.

You've got to plant one of those popcorn trees! After they mature in a couple years, when the outside temp gets above 90 degrees F, you can go out with your bowl and catch the kernels popping off the tree! It's pretty cool.

Yes, I've eaten corn on the cob and I've even shucked ears of corn before, but I can't say that I remember seeing the seeds on the cob. Is the yellow corn popcorn seeds before it turns into the yellow corn?

Yes, it's a specific type of corn, with a stiffer hull, and low internal moisture. When heated, the steam inside eventually pops the hull open, and you've got popcorn.

'Where does popcorn come from?'

No one knows exactly where popcorn came from or when it was first popped, but archaeologists have been "hot" on the popcorn trail, and they have found popcorn in some most unusual places. One such place was the tombs on the east coast of Peru where they found grains of popcorn that were a 1,000 years old. These grains were so well preserved that they still popped! Ears of popcorn were also found in the Bat Cave of West Central New Mexico that were nearly 5,600 years old. One of the oldest finds of popcorn was made in Mexico City where 80,000-year-old fossilized corn pollen was found buried 200 feet below the city!

Archaeologists believe that popcorn originated in Mexico, but they know that it was grown in China, Sumatra, and India years before Columbus visited America! By the time Columbus arrived in 1492, popcorn was widespread throughout North and South America and was enjoyed by most Native American tribes. The natives of the West Indies even tried to sell popcorn to Columbus and his crew, but it wasn't until the first Thanksgiving Feast at Plymouth, Massachusetts that the English colonists were introduced to popcorn. As a gift for the celebration, Quadequina, brother of the Wampanoag chief Massasoit brought a deerskin bag of popped corn. He certainly understood how to make friends fast!



Archaeologists have found ancient popcorn poppers on the north coast of Peru that date back to the pre-Incan Mohica Culture of about 300 AD. These poppers were usually shallow bowl-like containers with a hole on top and a single handle. They were sometimes decorated with a sculptured or printed motif such as a cat. However, you didn?t always even need a popper, as shown by some Native Americans who just spread oil on an ear of popcorn and laid it near a fire. The kernels would pop attached to the ear, and it was even eaten similar to corn-on-the-cob.

Re: Where Does Popcorn Come From?
My dad and I used to grow popcorn in the garden when I was a little girl. It it just like corn on the cob but the ears of corn are white instead of yellow. Put it on the stove and pop it in some oil in a kettle and it is yummy. That was back in the late 60's and those memories are still with me today like it was just last summer.

We All know, it (popcorn) comes from, just down the other side of the aisle near the Worcestershire Sauce next to tomato sauces.
