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? Everything about it.

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

Every single ear was beautiful! Just like opening a special gift every time. We grew this solely for the beauty of it, and we will do the same again this summer. I may actually try popping some this summer. I hear it’s excellent popcorn.

What are the pros? Color & Versatility

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are so easy to grow and can be used several ways. In addition to using them for flour and decorations/ornamental, they make a delicious popcorn!! The best I've every had actually. I had the best success popping them in olive oil or regular popcorn butter oil. Unseasoned might be a little to bland for some people, but I plan to use them for popping and stringing on my christmas tree this year! Thanks so much! These are truly a gem!

What are the pros? Grew tall, made pretty ears.

What are the cons? Not all kernels glassy

Review:

Didn't plant it until June because I didn't know about it until then. Grew very well, sometimes 4 or 5 stalks from one seed. Set on plenty of ears that developed well. However, it was not dry before the fall rains started. If I grow it again, I will start it indoors in April in hopes of the ears being fully dry before the fain sets in. The only reason I would not grow it again is, "What will I do with all that corn?"

What are the pros? Beautiful, easy to save seeds

What are the cons? Needs a warm Spring

Review:

My (then 3 yr old) son picked this out of the catalog abit more than two years ago. He loves it! The first year we planted the whole package, but do to a very wet and cold sping the plants really strigglef. We only ended up with about 20 fully formef ears. He saved the bestvtwo cobs, and planted it again this Spring. A MUCH better year weather and harvest wise. He (now 5) has harvest about 60 beautiful ears, dried them, and is selling them to fllrist for fall decorations. We will save a few ears to grow again nextvyear and to pop. This years corn was georgeous, some just kike the picture, others ears an almost ingigo volorcwith pops of vright pink and purple. Each one is a work of art. Also a fun crop to teach little ones about heirlooms, seed saving, landraces and native history.
