Glass Gem Corn Cherokee Heirloom Corn is the most beautiful corn in the world. Glass Gem Flint Corn 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. The vivid, kernels have a translucent seed coat. A bit of the white endocarp shows through giving the sense of a shining jewel. Glass gem has a wide variation in ear size, ranging from 3 to 8 inches in length. This is beautiful decorative corn but is also good for eating. Glass Gem grinds into delicious cornmeal or pops into white, fluffy popcorn for snacking. It can also be made into grits and hominy.
Corn plants commonly produce numerous tillers, or side stalks, which also produce ears. The height of plants depends upon the quantity of water but can reach up to 8 feet, typically 6 feet. These seeds are from a serious farmer/researcher here in Idaho and are guaranteed to be the original strain Naturally grown. I recommend 50 or more seeds because corn grows best planted in blocks (not single rows). They are mostly pollinated by wind and if you have just a few plants they will not get pollinated enough so you'll get bare and 1/2 cobs. Original strain 110-120 days.
