Glass Gem


Glass Gem is a stunning variety from Oklahoma native Carl Barnes. Originally selected from crosses Carl made from several Pawnee miniature corn varieties and another Osage variety called “Greyhorse.” Kernels are amazingly beautiful, in a complete range of translucent, multi-colored shades. Sturdy plants grow 6-8′ tall and produce an abundance of 7-8″ long ears. The kernels can be popped or ground into flour. Extremely productive.
