Corn Glass Gem

NZ $3.95

Description

Amazing rainbow coloured flintcorn with a multitude of uses. It's not sweet but can be ground for flour, popped for popcorn or hung up to dry with its husks pulled back for a beautiful dried ornamental. Each plant produces a slightly different cob to the next with no two exactly the same. Tall growing plants with multi tillers from the base so allow a good 60-90cm between plants. Expect 3-5 cobs per plant. 

Matures 90 days from direct sowing.
