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 cons? None

Review:

My daughter chose this variety after seeing it in the catalog last spring. It was very easy to grow, virtually pest free, matured before the first freeze, and the colors are really pretty! Will definitely plan to plant this again next year.

What are the pros? Easy to grow and sweet flavor

What are the cons? Immature corn isnt colorful

Review:

This was my first season growing and i was super excited. Ours didnt fully mature but it was fun picking it anyway. The small ears were very sweet and tender and all were white except one that had some turning purple. It was incredibly easy easy to grow, we had 0 pest problems with it and the stalks are beautiful, tall and thick. The o ly disappointment was the lack of color on the ears but we will try it again next year and hope for a little better growing season.

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.
