    Now for something completely different....

    Here's something you don't see very often, let alone on CP forums: I grow a lot of novelty veggies in my garden, and this year something rather new for me, glass gem corn.

    Every ear is different, and from this year's crop I've seen just about every color and shade of the rainbow. There's still a couple more to be harvested before tonight's hard freeze, and a sneak peek of one of them showed a multitude of sky blue kernels. Can't wait to see what comes of these seeds in next year's crop.

    They are typically used for ornamental purposes or crafts, but can be eaten as popcorn.

    That was my question, did you cook and eat any of them! I grew a a few odd balls this year and taste tested each of them, I'll only be growing one of them again

    Some of them look rather replusive. LOL That one you posted as your favorite, though, is really, really cool! Easily the most attractive of the bunch with your second favorite a close runner up.

    Be very interested to hear how the flavor turns out.

    Plant-wise, were the corn stalks as tall as normal corn stalks?

    Beautiful! I've looked into those before, are they easy to grow?
