Glass Gem Corn – The Most Beautiful Corn In The World !!!!
Written by Jessica Lal on May 23, 2023
There are times when you find a plant that perfectly combines beauty and utility. Glass gem corn is one of the best and most stunning examples of this phenomenon.
Glass gem corn is something special, an example that celebrates the variety of heritage crops, and shows us that we can grow far more than just the same old boring commercial varieties in our gardens.
Glass gem corn is an amazingly vibrant strain of rainbow coloured corn. It is a type of ‘flint corn’ which is grown not for eating off the cob, but for making popcorn, or grinding into cornflour.
It was an image of this crop that went viral in 2012 and turned this strain into an internet sensation.
