Did you know this? Rare Ingredients Encyclopedia-Iridescent Corn / Glass Gem Corn-

Developed by Carl Burns with his own crafting method!


“Glass Gem Cone” was developed by Karl Burns, a native American farmer who does agriculture in Oklahoma, USA. Mr. Burns, who for many years as a breeder has created “gemstone maize” by improving varieties by natural mating, not by recombination.

At first glance, you might think “Is it okay to eat?”, But of course it’s with corn. Since it is hard, use popcorn rather than salad or boiled. It looked shiny, but it was a kind of white popcorn.

In Japan, a seed company published “Glass Gem Cone” on Facebook in 2012, and it became a hot topic. A company in Arizona is currently working to expand production. The manufacturing process is considered a corporate secret, but Greg Sean, a friend Mr. Burns taught how to craft, who passed away after development, inherited the “grass gem cone”.

What is the taste of “pearl corn” different from the normal “yellow corn”? In fact, there doesn’t seem to be a major difference in taste. This is because “Glass Gem Corn” is an improved version of “Yellow Corn”. However, when baked or boiled you may notice a slightly different flavor.

It seems some people feel that the texture is different. “Glass corn” is very hard, so if you try to boil it like yellow corn you might get “Wow, hard!”.

There isn’t a huge flavor difference between “gem corn” and yellow corn, but you need to be careful when growing. If they were planted side by side just because they were the same “corn”, they would interfere with each other, and the “prairie maize” may not have color, whereas normal maize may be colored.
