Glass Gem Corn

Beautiful, multi-colored kernels make Glass Gem corn one of the most distinctive cultivars, and it’s a heritage open-pollinated variety, too.

This colorful corn wheel exemplifies the many variations in the color expression of the Glass Gem corn. Ear length in the photo shows a range in size from about 4-8 inches. This is some of the corn that was held back to use next year at Mer-Girl Gardens. The selected seed stock was chosen to represent as much of the diversity, vigor, strength, and beauty that the corn expressed.
