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:

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.

Review:

This was my first time growing corn, and I planted about 12 in a 5 gallon bucket, as my space is limited. Even so, these still grew great, and were ~7-8 feet tall, with thick stalks. The potting mix was a good commercial grade, to which I added 25% peat moss, ~25% cow manure, and 1/4 cup of bone meal. I watered and fed fairly heavy, and applied a thick top dressing of manure after 2 months, which I'm sure helped. These were almost always standing in a couple inches of water up to the end of the season. I think the optimal number of plants in this type of setup would be 7 or less. Ears were gorgeous, and varied from 3" to 6" long. I hand pollinated several times, which helps if you only have a few plants. I couldn't bring myself to eat any, but am sending seed to gardening friends, and will plant a lot more with better spacing this summer.? The only hard part of growing these is waiting to see the endless color variations!

Review:

Have grown for three years in a row now. I have a container full of the most beautiful corn. I take out ears as needed and pluck of the kernels to pop! I have one of those theatre popcorn poppers due to we are popcorn freaks. I pop with coconut oil, popcorn salt and don't even need butter. This is the best tasting popcorn ever. I have not bought store bought in three years and boy cant go back to it. Was so much fun to husk each ear for a different art show each time. Watch out for the squirrels they love this! Easy to grow. Put seed in my garden and watered garden when needed...that's it. Easier than sweet corn actually. Your kids or grandchildren will love it! Germination was awesome.
