Corn, Stowell's Evergreen Seeds   

Organic, 2008

Description: The original strain of this variety was bred by Nathaniel Newman Stowell, born May 16, 1793 in New Ipswich, Massachusetts. Still the leading white variety for home gardens and market growers. Ears grow 8-9" long and have14-20 rows of kernals, 1-2 ears per stalk, holds well.

80-100 days.

Planting Instructions: Sow seeds outdoors only after the danger of frost has passed. Corn will not germinate properly when the soil is still cold in the spring. Sow seeds 1’ deep every 3-4" om rows 3-4’ apart. thin the seedlings to 8" apart after the plants come up. Corn should be planted in a 3-4 row block (instead of one long row) to ensure well filled-out ears.

Seed Saving Instructions: All corn varieties are wind-pollinated and will cross-pollinate with each other. Varieties should be hand-pollinated or isolated by 1 mile to ensure purity. Allow ears to dry on the plants, harvest and shell.
