As someone who grew up in Ohio, I have been around a LOT of corn. One of my chores growing up was shucking corn from the fields and prepping it to cook. Corn has been a HUGE part in my life and I still love eating it!

So to find out now, at the age of 31, that there is rainbow corn!?! My mind has been completely blown. Where has this been my whole life? Can I convince my husband to let me grow corn in our backyard? Does it taste like normal corn? The questions I had were endless!

According to their page:

Glass Gem Corn is the most beautiful corn in the world.

Extremely rare, this unique strain of flint corn was developed by Carl Barnes, who, before his passing, gave these seeds to friends who shared his passion in gardening.

These seeds come directly from our small farm here in Fallsington, PA. We have been growing and breeding corn varieties for years and it has been a pleasure to work with Glass Gem. We have worked to improve the glassiness and color variation in this variety and can now boast 3 different strains including the Glass Gem, Rubies/Amber and Pearls/Sapphires.

Glass Gem is a flint corn which can be made into a decent popcorn or ground into flour. We think it’s so beautiful to simply look at.


Does this mean that if I pop it as popcorn, it’ll be naturally colored rainbow popcorn? That’s it…I have to try this.

Now I just ahve to figure out how to convince my husband. Maybe I can just tell him it’s flower seeds and have an oops.
