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.

A handful of Glass Gem jeweled kernels. Ron and Debora, owners at Mer-Girl Gardens where the Glass Gem seed was grown, say they feel very wealthy with handfuls of seed. Around 400 pounds of the seed were shelled and cleaned at the time of this photo on October 14, nearly 150 days from planting.
