CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Oklahoma native Carl Barnes selected the stunning Glass Gem Organic corn seeds from several traditional heirlooms known for their beauty. Words don't do justice to the multicoloured, translucent, gem-like kernels on these amazing cobs. The plants are sturdy and grow 6-8' tall, with several 18-20cm (7-8") long ears. The kernels can be popped or ground into flour, but they're almost too beautiful to part with. Consider starting this one indoors, as it has a long maturation. The kernels take on these extraordinary colours as they dry so they make exceptional autumn displays. No two cobs are identical.
