In the early 1800s, after years of refining this strain, Nathaniel Newman Stowell sold two ears of seed for $4.00 to a friend who agreed to use it only for his private use. His “friend” then sold the seed for $20,000. Stowell’s Evergreen is still the leading sweet corn for home gardens and market growers. Ears grow 8-9″ long, 1-2 ears per stalk, holds well.

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!
