Colorful ear of corn

Growing your own food can be so fun!

Head on over to Etsy.com where you can snag this Glass Gem Corn Seeds 20-Count Pack for just $3.99!

This beautiful colored corn comes from a unique strain of flint corn and is from a small farm in Fallsington, PA. Once grown, the corn can be used for popcorn or ground into flour. They would also be cute to let dry out and use as home decor in fall!

Corn is best planted after the last frost in Spring, so this is a great time to order your seeds to start planting in just a few weeks depending on your area!

This Etsy seller has an almost 5-star rating with over 3,500 reviews and over 44,000 sales! Shipping is free on orders of $35+ from this seller; otherwise, shipping will vary by delivery area.

Amazing, this is my first time planting anything and I didn’t expect anything to even sprout but holy moly in a week I have little corn like leaf babies!!!!! And all 6 of them grew! Proud mama moment.


Purchased around 9 pm and received tracking at 9 am the following morning. Purchased during the height of the holiday season and still got seeds immediately. Would continue to use the company.

    Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (rareseeds.com) is one of my favorite seed sellers. I just ordered from them last week. Free shipping (this corn is a little more on their site) and I love the rarity of fruits and vegetables I am able to grow. I ventured out and trying my hand at tomatoes that taste like pineapples this year! My seeds are ordered and all my seed trays (enough for over 1,500 seeds) came in at just about 75% off through rebaid.com (thanks again for this H2S!!) so I am fixing to start this week starting them all in hopes that they will be ready for planting in a few months!!!

    Does anyone know what this corn tastes like? I have never seen this before and I am intrigued.

    This is a not a sweet corn, which is why it’s for popping or grinding. If you do plant this, make sure it is a good distance from your sweet corn! If you plant the varieties close together, the bees will cross pollinate and it will make your sweet corn bland.

    I remember all those old posts about Fiber One bars making you regular…and now I am wondering about glass gem kernels on the back end. I need to grow up.

      Valid concern. I love popcorn and eat it very rarely now…

        I too suffer from can’t eat much popcorn syndrome πŸ™ and it was always my favorite snack.
