One of the oldest corn varieties, Stowell's Evergreen also remains one of the most popular. Plump, white, and very sweet kernels are this corn's claim to fame. As is its generous size. Ears are 8-9 inches in length with 16-20 rows of kernels. Stowell's takes a bit longer to grow, but is so worth the wait. 80-100 days.
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.
