Can I plant Burpee's Mini Blue Popcorn next to Burpee's Breeder's Bicolor Sweet Corn? If they cross pollinate will I get some strange type of corn?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm afraid it's true that there could be some odd offspring in those cobs if the corns cross pollinate. However, if they blossom (tassel out) at different times, then there should be no problem. Otherwise, plant them 50' apart.
