The leading white sweet corn for home and market gardeners, this drought-tolerant historic variety was introduced in mid-1800s, after years of refining, by Nathaniel Newman Stowell. It earned great praise at the time from farmers, and the 1853 Pennsylvania Farm Journal’s comments were also consistently positive. From there, the variety commercialized quickly, and by 1858, it was being sold by James M. Thorburn & Company of New York. Ears grow beautifully to 8-9" long, 1-2 ears per stalk, and hold well. 80-100 days. ±2,300 seeds/lb.

Germination: 4-21 Days

Rows Apart: 36-48"

Light: Full Sun

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained, fertile soil with plenty of water.
