Sweetcorn Glass Gem

Approximate Seed Quantity: 8

Translucent multicoloured beads on this Flint popping corn imitate glass, hence the name. This stunning variety is vigorous and can reach 2 metres plus so needs a warm sheltered position. Start undercover as early as possible to give as much growing time as possible. You can pop the corn, dry the decorative cobs or even grind for flour. Download sowing guide
