Product Description

This Glass Gem Corn, a beautiful Indian corn, is being offered in limited quantities. The photo is of the exact ears your seeds will come from. It is undoctored; that's just how beautiful they really are. This corn has very diverse looks, sometimes the entire ear is blue, sometimes it's dark, sometimes it's pink. You just don't know until you open your wrapped corn present! Each year we grow a giant garden of our favorite vegetables. Most of my favorite vegetables have been old time varieties that people currently call "Heirloom". It is with great pleasure that I offer up my favorites for you. This corn was grown far from any other corn so there should be zero cross contaminated genetics. 20 seeds per pack. Corn should be grown fully in 10x10 areas unless you plan to hand pollinate them! I guarantee germination for this current year or your money back. Seeds must be stored in a cool dry area.

OMGosh! This corn requires some patience-- don't give up on it too soon! it takes longer than regular corn, and is SO worth the wait! You will do well to lime your garden ahead of time, keep the weeds out, hill up the rows, and plant in blocks, not a big long row. It is just so dang beautiful! Chickens will eat it like candy, too!

Most of my seeds germinated (although only three survived my sister's damn chicken) and were fairly healthy. They stopped at about five-ish feet tall (which is great! I had read elsewhere that these things can get like fifteen feet tall and I have no idea what I would have done if they had). Each of the survivors grew between two and five ears, which is pretty good, I think.
But the tassel and silk emerged about a week and a half apart. The pollen was almost totally gone by the time the silk got around to showing up, and I got about thirty kernels out of the deal (the colors are kinda dark, but still very pretty). I'm going to hang onto the seeds and plant them again in the spring. I'll just bag the tassels when they show up, I guess.

My review would be higher, possibly, if I hadn't shelled out twenty bucks for them. :/

Finally got my seeds planted and harvested my first tiny crop of corn ever! Bought these seeds with the intention of planting them in a tropical mountain climate, likely very different than what they were grown in. These seeds were planted at 4' south & appx 6000' elevation. They were planted in poor rocky soil with river sand to cover and fill the area, in the off season (winter). Only 40 seeds were planted. Approximately half of them sprouted with my novice attempts at watering in the hot dry season. The garden plot was no more than 3' x 10' - VERY small for attempting a good corn pollination. I learned just after the flowering started that it would be a good idea to hand pollinate. I made the best late attempt as I could a couple times to pollinate all the silk. This is likely why many of the ears produced seedless cobs.

During the grow season I attended a seed exchange and learned about how challenging growing corn from different regions of the world is here - most people stick with the tried and true varietals that have grown here for..ever. After learning about all the nasty pests that corn gets here I left feeling very sad that I had not researched growing corn AT ALL before planting, much less identifying the growing season. Local reports suggest that many species of plants do not go to seed here, especially corn.

I went home and decided to pull several of the taller (4ft) already browned stalks to see how they had done. Many of them clearly showed insect damage with exposed ears. I had very little hope after hearing about how my neighbor's crops needed such intense care and attention. I was very surprised to see several nicely developed ears. A couple of them showed almost only even colored dark red/purplish-black seeds.

I thought I'd get at least 50 seeds to plant, I got maybe 12. Corn has to be planted in large clusters to pollinate, so it's doubtful I'll even get a crop!

I was skeptical at first but it really does grow as pictured. The flavor isn't bad either.

These have grown quickly, with 100% germination of the seeds that I planted. Can't wait to see the corn when it's ready. I still have leftover seeds that I'll probably plant next year. These plants are growing faster and larger than some sweet corn that I have in the same plot.

At the first time I thought that I will received a lot of corn grains but in the package came with less of ten. Does not look like the picture but they are different at the regular corn. Lets see when they grow up how are them...

There were more seeds than described, which is a nice surprise. The seeds look great, and I can't wait to get them planted. The seeds came with a note from the seller, along with a photo of the ear of corn they came from. They arrived sooner than I had expected. A blog address was included to get more information on the seeds and how to grow them, and for an avid heirloom seed gardener this was a definite bonus! I am very pleased with my purchase and look forward to growing these beautiful ears of corn.
