Glass Gem Corn

         
 
25 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

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, 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.

Our current strain of Glass Gem was grown by Ron Boyd and Debra Clare of Mer-Girl Gardens in Alcalde, New Mexico. Ron sent us the stunning, full ears of glass gem popcorn from which our photographers created the cover for our Whole Seed Catalog. Understanding that their seeds would eventually end up in the hands of Baker Creek customers, the folks at Mer-Girl Gardens took great care in producing the finest quality seed possible. We can show our appreciation to Ron and Debra by visiting them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Mer-Girl-Gardens-295388580481343/timeline/.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This corn thrived the most in my garden. I planted 6 varieties of corn and this was by far the best. We have a big pest problem here so when I saw how wonderful my ears were I was ecstatic. They easily grew 8-10 feet tall. This will be permanent in my garden. It made wonderful popcorn!

What are the pros? Lots of Stalks/Ears

What are the cons? thin

Review:

Most of the plants I planted split and developed multiple stalks with 3-5 ears on each stalk. The cobs are kind of thin compared to whats in the store but they're so beautiful. I got a wide variety of colors, from yellowish tinged with color to full vibrant colors. I think a few of the black corn that I planted cross pollinated as well cause a few dark but colorful cobs developed too. Very happy!

What are the pros? Beautiful colors, easy to grow

What are the cons? Small ears, critters love 'em

Review:

I planted one row of this with several other varieties. I got a few normal sized heads, but most are between 5-8 inches and skinny. The corn borer really loved these but luckily they leave plenty behind if you catch them on time. Very tall and vigorous growth in the stalk. I boiled some ears and they are tasty and nutty with butter and salt.

What are the pros? Colors are amazing

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the most beautiful corn I've ever seen! It has all the colors of the rainbow on the different ears. Most of the corn was 7 to 8 inches and just as stunning as the picture looks. Every time I peeled back the husks, it about took my breath away in how beautiful they were! I highly recommend this as a wonderful addition to your garden.

What are the pros? Good mix of Vibrant colors

What are the cons? Not all uniform on sizes

Review:

Even being neglected due to injury of the gardener it did well and produced ears on nearly all the stalks, this was worth the price and harvested at least one ear per seed planted
