One of my corn ears has 3 seperate silk emerging from different angles! The largest ear which was the first to grow is almost 12 inches long Blinking This corn plant has almost 5 ears growing on it which is way above average for this variety!

This was grown from glass gem corn seed I bought last year and grew, this is 2nd generation. I know I gave a lot of seed away but haven't heard from anyone on the corn. Definetly quality stock and I can't wait till they are fully grown to show a photo!

I've been thinking about trying some of that Glass Gem corn. Maybe I will next year.

Here they are! One ear apparently never developed any further, but you can see 3 on one stalk and how big! This is from the same Glass gem corn seeds I sent to everyone here!
