Glass Gem Corn (Zea mays) produces highly variegated, three to eight-inch cobs with translucent kernels that can be used for grinding or merely staring at and marveling at the immense diversity of the natural world. Originally sourced from Native Seed Search in Arizona, we are proud to be the most recent stewards of this variety on our farm in Southern California and offer it to our customers in a certified organic form.
Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
120 days from seed to dried cobs. Annual.
