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.

The ears have begun to develop in the cornfield approximately 75 days after planting. Ron says that by this time in the grow out, he was really amazed at the diversity of stalk height, which went from around 3-10 feet, and the stalk color ranged from purple to green. The shape of the stock was mostly round, but some were oblong, which would be apparent if one were to make a cross-cut.
