Sweet Corn Seeds - Stowell's Evergreen

One of the oldest and best sweet corn still in existence! Plants produce sweet, creamy-white kernels of around 20-23cm long.

Not only can you enjoy your cobs fresh, but the plants can also be harvested fully ripe, then hung upside down in a cool shed and used in their semi-ripe state all the way into winter, hence the name 'evergreen'.

Simply boil or steam when required.

Sow singly in pots April-May in a warm greenhouse/frame. Plant out 35cm (14") apart late May-early June after hardening off. Plant in blocks to assist pollination and increase cob production.

Interestingly, Nathaniel Stowell worked for decades to develop the variety. He sold 2 ears to a friend for $4 and the friend agreed that it was just for private use. The “friend” sold the seed for $20,000 and it was introduced to the seed trade.
