Glass Gem Ornamental Corn Seed

Originally developed from one farmer's collection of heirloom native American seeds, Glass Gem is the most vibrant variety we've seen. An amazing array of translucent colors that resemble glass beads cover these beautiful 4-8 in. ears. Loved for their ornamental value, Glass Gem's kernels are also good as popped corn or ground for cornmeal. A yield of 2-3 ears per stalk is common. Approx. 50 seeds per pkt. 110 DAYS.
