Our Glass Gem corn seed produces a diversity of gorgeous translucent, jewel-colored ears, each one unique. A stunning corn variety selected over many years by Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer and breeder from Oklahoma. Selected from crossing several traditional corn varieties and saving seed from the vivid, translucent kernels. Size of ears range from 3-8 inches. Corn plants commonly produce numerous tillers, or side stalks, which also produce ears. Height of plants depend upon quantity of water, but can reach up to 9 feet, typically 6 feet. The kernels may be ground into cornmeal or popped (popping is not comparable to modern engineered popcorns - we actually don't recommend popping it). Glass Gem can be picked approximately 110-120 days after planting. Harvest when husks and stalks are dry and brown for the most intense and translucent colors. Grown in our local USA family heirloom garden...isolated from other corn varieties so they are pure Glass Gem seeds - Each Glass Gem corn ear produces displays gorgeous and different colors - 100+ seeds in each pack Green Thumb Tip: Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost has passed. You should only need to plant 1-2 seeds per space about 8" apart. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.
