Glass Gem Corn
Zea mays subsp. mays Approximately 50 seeds per pack. Germination ~ 96% April 2021
Opening each ear of Glass Gem Corn is like unwrapping a gift. Each vivid, translucent kernel is a unique hue of lavender, indigo, chartreuse, pink grapefruit and cream with hundreds of hues in between. Though typically grown as an ornamental, Glass Gem is also a scrumptious flour corn and we love to enjoy its rich, nutty polenta. It was bred by the late part-Cherokee farmer Carl Barnes of Oklahoma, and introduced by Native Seeds/SEARCH.
