Though the striking color is other-worldly, the flavor of this one-of-a-kind jewel is more traditional—slightly less sweet than modern, very sweet hybrids. Harvest fresh, or wait a bit longer and the sugar subsides, becoming perfect for breads or chowder, or wait even longer to harvest, and use the dried kernels for flour. Plants grow up to 6′ tall. Botanical Interests’® Martian Jewels Sweet Corn Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
