Stowell’s Evergreen Corn is very sweet.
Introduced in 1848, the leading white corn variety for home and market. Oldest named variety still available, it can be pulled up whole in the fall and stored upside down. Fresh corn can then be picked into February, giving the name 'Evergreen'.
8-9" tapered ears, 14-20 rows of clear, yellow-white kernels of excellent quality. Holds well. Hard to find today.
Approx 125 seeds per pack
Plant corn directly in warm and rich soil 1 or 2 weeks after last frost in spring. Germination is best in soil temperature of at least 60F. At 55F., it will be retarded, and at 50F. there is minimal germination.
Plant 1"-2" deep and thin to 8"-10" apart in rows 30"- 36" apart. Planting 4-row blocks ensures better pollination than 2 long rows. Corn is ready when the silk on the ears is brown. Old timers say to put the pot on to boil as you go out to pick corn. The sooner it is cooked the tastier it is.
