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

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.
