Ears grow 8-9" long, 1-2 ears per stalk, holds well. 80-100 days. ±2,300 seeds/lb.

Learn to Grow it

Direct Seed: 2" Apart

Seed Depth: 1/4-1/2"

Germination: 5-30 Days

Light: Full Sun - These plants prefer warm weather and soil so they should be grown when temperatures are over 68 degrees F.

Direct seed corn in rows 36-48 inches apart and plant the kernels 4 inches apart and 1 inch deep. The seeds take 4-21 days to germinate. Thin your stalks to 8 inches apart as they grow and they should mature in 80-100 days. Corn should be planted in blocks rather than in long rows to maximize pollination. Consider planting a corner of your garden with 3-6 rows of corn next to each other rather than one long row.

There are about 2.3k seeds in a pound of Stowell's Evergreen corn.
