While this tale from The Legend of Ponnivala may seem very fanciful, we were surprised to make contact this month with a group from Arizon that specialises in native seed conservation. One of their most interesting products is called glass gem corn, and this corn looks remarkably like the magical corn depicted in this scene from Ponnivala!

These seeds are specially grown for their beautiful, translucent quality. But they are completely edible, and make for good popcorn too! They can be ordered online by contacting Native Seeds through their website at http://www.nativeseeds.org/
