Glass Gem popcorn has gorgeous translucent, jewel-colored ears, each one unique. A stunning variety selected over many years by Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer and breeder from Oklahoma.
Selected from crossing several traditional corn varieties and saving seed from the vivid, translucent kernels.
Size of ears range from 3-8 inches. Height of plants depend upon water, but can reach up to 9 feet, typically 6 feet. The kernels may be ground into cornmeal or popped.
Glass Gem can be harvested approx. 110-120 days after planting when the husks are dry and brown for the most intense and translucent colors.
