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.

What are the pros? Most beautiful veg out there

What are the cons? Long growing time.

Review:

I am a novice corn grower, so I likely didn't grow in the most effective way. I sowed these in early April and did not harvest til mid-September.We had a warm, dry summer. Definitely more than 105 days. However, I have 3 small children and will likely always devote space to this corn, because of their responses upon seeing the cobs. We had a range, from very dark "rainbow" to pink, blue, yellow and blue, and then a few cobs that were the classic rainbow like the picture. Absolutely breathtaking.The plants did not grow uniformly, but that may have been a soil issue.

Review:

This was my first summer growing Glass Gem and it will definitely not be my last! Despite a relatively dry summer, it did quite well. I have never had so much fun husking corn- it was like Christmas morning unwrapping these gems! I am hoping to try popping the kernels, that is if I can bear to eat them! ??

Review:

I had never grown corn of any sort before - this was my first try! We had a brutally hot and dry summer, but this corn stayed strong. I also have problems with groundhogs ( and other varmints ) with all my other veggies but this corn wasn't messed with at all by any animals. When the corn is ready to harvest, the process of removing the husk to reveal what colors you got is IMMENSELY fun and rewarding. Every ear is unique and just as if not more beautiful than the photos on this site. I intentionally planted a lot of pink kernels from the packet, and ended up with a few solid pink ears. I also had a plant that produced ears that had only powder-pink, lavender and baby-blue kernels. You can imagine how pretty that is. Im definitely going to grow this again next year and plant even more (i only did a few plants this year because I didnt know what to expect). I certainly recommend this if youre looking for an ornamental corn!

Germination was near 100%. Stalks grew to 9 feet. My family and I loved husking these beautiful gems! Will use them as table decoration for Thanksgiving this year. Definitely a must grow variety.
