Glass Gem Corn was a long lost variety which was deposited by a seedsman at Seeds Trust. In 2011, Bill McDormann, president of Seeds Trust decided to grow them. When he saw the result of the glass gem seed corn, he was absolutely amazed and posted photos of the corn on the Internet and went viral in May 2012 with a post on the social networking site Reddit which was then picked-up by dozens of other social media outlets. Currently, there is insufficient supply for marketing. #Corn #Glass_Gem
