In the early 1800s, after years of refining this strain, Nathaniel Newman Stowell sold two ears of seed for $4.00 to a friend who agreed to use it only for his private use. His “friend” then sold the seed for $20,000. Stowell’s variety is still the leading white sweet corn for home gardens and market growers. Ears grow 8-9" long, 1-2 ears per stalk, holds well. 80-100 days. ±2,300 seeds/lb.

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.
