115 days to harvest Zea maize

Opening each ear of Organic 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.

Organic Glass Gem Corn

115 days to harvest Zea maize

Description

Opening each ear of Organic 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.

Our Glass Gem has a larger ear size than most Glass Gem with ears averaging 8 inches and early maturity compared to other strains. With abundant fertility and water, we get 6-8 side shoots each producing 1-3 additional ears. Glass Gem is a new variety developed by Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer and breeder from Oklahoma. Glass Gem is perfect for three sisters gardens when grown with pole dry beans and any vining winter squash, like Sibley or Honeynut.

    Just stunning, and so easy! This seed produced healthy stalks with multiple multicolored ears! They needed nothing more than a little thinning to ensure proper spacing. I allowed the stalks to dry, and at harvest made the most beautiful fall decor to share with family and friends. This is absolutely a must sow if you are looking to grow something lovely.
