Corn 'Glass Gem' - These intensely beautiful popcorn kernels look exactly like translucent glass beads. Due to their unique rainbow colours and bright, luscious look, the kernels have been compared to gems. Used mainly for decoration and ornamental purposes, (obviously) these corn plants are also incredibly flavourful and juicy; the most popular form it is served in is popcorn, but it can also be eaten fresh, turned into cornmeal, and added to many dishes.
