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.

Stunningly beautiful rows of kernels that look like strings of colourful pearls. Problem free plants were easy to grow. Wonderful Thanksgiving decorations. Too beautiful to eat.

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.

What are the pros? Very hardy, fast growers

What are the cons? Some weaklings, flowers late

Review:

All in all i was a little disappointed. I 've selected the finest 54 seeds out of my package, and all germinated quickly. So far so good, but soon some weaklings catch the eye, they were nine in total, little weak creeps, very slow to grow. The remaining plants did very well, but until it comes to the first flowering, it was early August (sown in mid April in the greenhouse). Then a storm stroked down the most of the very heavy plants, and i gave it up upon them. Just gave them a look now and then, and registered a continuous coming of flowers till the very recent day- in end september! The plants delivered a very unconsistently impression. Some HUGE, some tiny, some pure male. Some with (1-2) small husks along the stem, some with 3 huge husks bundled under the very top. But after all yesterday the total surprise- the first two ripe and dry cobs- both beautiful OO! And a couple are still to ripen, two are nearly as ready. In general, a very inconsistent bunch, but nice crop!

The corn germinated well and we got a good crop, sadly the colors were lacking. mostly greys, blues and yellow. Colors dulled when dried.

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.
