Glass Gem Corn

105 days. Amazing color! Indescribably beautiful flint or popcorn comes in an endless range of colors. Translucent kernels really do shine brilliantly like glass—on the cob they resemble strands of glass beads! The 3-8” ears are consummately decorative, but edible and delicious as well. Makes firm little morsels when popped; can also be parched, ground into meal, and more. Sturdy plants reach to 9’ in height and throw numerous sideshoots where the season is long enough. Bred from a number of native varieties by Carl “White Eagle” Barnes, the famous Cherokee corn collector to whom we owe our gratitude for his life’s work of collecting, preserving and sharing so many native corn varieties.

Review:

I have a 100%organic garden, I have grown plenty of corn in my life, glass gem was by far the easiest to grow. Nothing really bothered with it and it did not get any diseases! Very impressive for zone 8a where it is a constant battle against disease and insects! Wow. I harvested in June and am growing a second set for fall. It is an excellent popcorn, I have not yet tried any for grinding. It is the most beautiful corn I have ever seen/grown

So I grew this this last season and it's all starting to dry up now.... it is beautiful so easy to grow! I am still new to gardening a lot of things and I did not expect this to grow but I have more corn than I know what to do with :D Also I used it as popcorn and it was very good! I think I will be giving some as gifts this year

Review:

As the rainy season was late, I grew these as transplants- and it worked! They were so fast, in less than a week were ready to go out, at which time the rains had come! They are fast, sturdy, with tillers, which is important for our animals. We can?t know if the rains will continue until September, but this corn is actually two weeks faster than our local native corn, so we are hopeful!t

Review:

I just harvested my first ears today. I planted them around the end of February I believe and every two weeks afterward. All of my seeds germinated. They are about 6-8 ft tall. Something (probably lubbers) shredded the leaves when they were about 2 ft but it didn't seem to bother the plant. They really are incredibly beautiful. I am drying some out now to make some popcorn

Review:

Grew well in crusty clay soil with moderate watering. I overdried in oven so it wouldn’t pop but I ground in the blender and made great cornbread! I got 2-3 ears per stalk. I’ll also harvest some earlier this year to cook and eat on the cob. The kernels are amazingly colored.
