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 was impressed by how pretty some of these small to medium sized cobs were. I did accidentally cross pollinate with peaches and cream corn so some of the cobs were mixed colored and kind of tough, but the deer still loved them. These are so beautiful that I will only be growing glass gem and will just buy any other corn I want. Due to my cross pollination mistake our yield was stunted and several immature cobs stayed on the stalks, which the squirrels proceeded to literally shred as they jumped back and forth from my sunflowers.

Review:

Beautiful decoration for Fall and Thanksgiving turns into gorgeous jars of loose kernel popcorn for Christmas! I gave this out in half filled jars with fake tealights (battery operated) sitting atop the kernels and have gotten nothing but raves! I cannot wait to have popcorn with my granddaughter this year! We grew pink popcorn this year as well! Little hometown garden plot, but we can grow plenty of food for my growing family!

What are the pros? Absolutely beautiful

What are the cons? Some ears didn't mature

Review:

This was my first time trying to grow corn. I grew a 6x6 square with about 8" spacing between plants, and most stalks grew well. About a quarter of the plants never got very large, but 100% of the seeds I planted germinated. Most stalks had only one ear that fully developed, but a few had two. No problems with worms on any of the ears that matured.Opening up the ripened ears was like Christmas! You never know what colors you'll have inside. I had ears with beautiful pearly pastel kernels, rich, dark jewel tones, some mostly blues, some mostly pink. Many of the pinkish ears also had magenta-tinged husks. My 7-year-old son loved guessing which colors would be inside! I got about 1 - 1.5 quarts of kernels after shelling, which I will pop and feed to our chickens. If you're considering purchasing these seeds, do it!

What are the pros? No worms or bugs!

What are the cons? none

Review:

I usually don't have very good luck with corn, but this stuff grew like crazy! Many of the stalks had 4-5 ears. The best part: not a single ear had worms! The ears were a wide variety of colors, from mostly yellow all the way through the rainbow to some that were nearly all blue.After drying, the kernels are beautiful stored in jars, and make some very tasty popcorn.

Review:

My daughter chose this variety after seeing it in the catalog last spring. It was very easy to grow, virtually pest free, matured before the first freeze, and the colors are really pretty! Will definitely plan to plant this again next year.
