Extra-large ears of Stowell’s Evergreen Sweet Corn have graced family picnics for over a century. One of the many heirlooms that can be traced back to Native American seed stock, later developed into a commercial crop for the home gardener. Pure white kernels with sweet, delicate flavor, a late variety that is best grown alongside an earlier corn (try Golden Cross) for a longer corn-eating season.
Plant Information
Named for its developer, Nathaniel Newman Stowell, Stowell's Evergreen corn was introduced in New Jersey in 1848. It's a cross between Menomony Soft corn and Northern Sugar corn, giving it a tender texture and deliciously sweet taste. Like most corn, Stowell's Evergreen is wind pollinated, so you'll want to plant your crop in a block of shorter rows instead of one long one. Choose a sunny location in your garden that's a minimum of 100 square feet in size. Also, be sure it's on a side that won't block the sun from other plants when the corn stalks get tall. Each stalk will bear several 9-inch ears big enough around to boast 16-20 rows of kernels.
