'Corn, Maize- Glass Gem' seeds

Zea mays


  • Multicoloured variety
  • Great for popping

Popular maize corn with multi-coloured kernels which have a translucent glass appearance. Plants grow up to 3m tall and produce 2-3 cobs per plant. This unique rainbow corn can be used as a popping corn or ground into cornmeal. Kernels are hard and dense, this variety is often referred to as a 'flint' corn due to the hard casing surrounding the kernel.

Corn cobs need to remain on the plant until the husks are completely dry before harvesting. This is important to allow the corn to develop the coloured kernels. Once harvested the husks should be removed and cobs need to be air-dried for a week or two prior to being popped or ground.
