    OMG! I’ve always wanted to try to grow this type of corn but thought it was just an ornamental. Perfect COVID project — I hope it isn’t too late in the season.

      I’ve never hear of corn as fall crop. Better research your growing zone, and read up on corn. It’s not the easiest beginner crop for novices or poor soil. I thought this was a craft/culinary post. 😉 The lead image looks like candy but the second looks like ordinary Indian corn.

      • Elsie

        Thank you Erin! I thought that being in Southern California I might be able to squeeze in a winter crop, but it kinda looks doubtful. Maybe next year.

  2. Anne

    I’ve never had success growing these expensive corn seeds.

  3. Katie

    This might be a dumb question but can you eat it off the cob too? Or is it only good for popcorn and flour?

    • Elsie

      I don’t think it ‘s a dumb question. I’m guessing that it doesn’t taste very sweet or good off the cob and probably isn’t a sweet corn variety.

    I thought this was going to be an April Fools!

  5. Jackie

    Beautiful but usually corn takes between 2-3 months to mature and warm weather. Here in KS it’s been cold. Winter in coming. Too late for us

    Until i clicked on this to look closer, they look like jelly beans!

    8.43 with shipping and tax.

    Bakers creek (rareseeds.com) has 75 seeds for $5, shipping is free in North America.

    It’s too late to grow in most of the country for this year. You could try in the spring. Just plant all the seeds in a grid pattern (not in a row) because the plants will need to pollinate each other to fill out the ears. 20 seeds is a very low number to make that happen.

  10. Ariavenew

    Yes, listen to Dee. Far too late to grow this year. If you want to try next year, buy the seed then. Nice they have so many positive reviews, but there’s no way that’s based on people’s success actually growing… I guarantee that reflects high hopes and excitement for trying, lol. And maybe there’s fun enough in that!

  11. laby

    You can buy this at most online seed shops and but it’s out of stock most places now because it’s too late to plant and they haven’t put out the seed for 2021 yet.

    I always get a few seed catalogs when they are available and spend the winter browsing them and wishing for spring.

    I got glass gem corn seeds from migardener.com a couple years ago and they grew great!!!

    • Bzroses13

      Oh and at least when I got them- they were 99 cents!

      • Rae

        What party of the country did you plant them?
