One of the oldest sweet corn varieties that is still in production, predating 1949. Stowell’s Evergreen is a favorite, producing tasty white kernels. The plants used to be pulled up when completely ripe and hung upside-down in a cool pantry; the ears would last well into the winter, in a semi-fresh state. (90 days)
Each packet contains approximately 125 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant this warm-season vegetable directly into the soil two weeks after your average last-frost date. Sow 1 inch deep, 8 to 12 inches apart. Crops require full sun, ample water and deep rich organic soil to perform well.
Harvest ears three weeks after tassels appear. Look for brown silks, dark green husks and plump kernels that squirt “milky” liquid when pinched; clear juice is immature. Prepare and cook shortly after picking — flavor is lost quickly!
