Description - Stowell's Evergreen' sweet corn is one of, if not, the oldest named sweet corn varieties in existence. It is a late season variety, that yields 20cm long ears that each produce anywhere from ten to fourteen rows of sweet, white, tender kernels. It keeps longer than most, which makes it one of the best heirloom varieties for the table, canning, and freezing. Because these excellent traits, it has been a home garden and market grower favourite sweet corn variety since Nathan Stowell of Burlington, New Jersey first began sharing his creation in 1848. Mr. Stowell developed 'Stowell's Evergreen' from a stabilized cross between a now presumed extinct "soft corn" called 'Menomony' and another extinct variety simply called, 'Northern Sugar'. A great sweetcorn for the home garden and market scale growing.
