About Corn Seeds - Glass Gem

Zea mays

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed

Looking for ways to bring your children into the garden? Glass Gem Corn is sure to do the trick as each ear is packed with jewel-toned kernels that actually glisten in the sun! Plant for its novelty, but enjoy the short, narrow ears of Glass Gem Corn steamed, popped, ground or dried. Glass Gem Corn contains a low moisture content, so it does make for a good popcorn. Prior to harvest, peek inside husk - muted colors will signify more time is needed on the stalk.
