Glass Gem Corn

Rating:
92% of 100

105 days. Amazing color! Indescribably beautiful flint or popcorn comes in an endless range of colors. The translucent kernels really do shine brilliantly like glass—on the cob they resemble strands of glass beads! The 3- to 8-inch ears are not only decorative, but edible and delicious as well. Makes firm little morsels when popped, but can also be parched, ground into meal, and more. Sturdy plants reach to 9' tall 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.
