(Zea mays) 80-100 days. Developed by Nathan Stowell of New Jersey in 1848 as a cross between Menomony Soft Corn and Northern Sugar Corn. After 150 years, Non-GMO Stowell’s Evergreen Corn, is still the leading white variety for home gardens and market growers. Produces 9″ ears, on 8′ tall stalks, with 16-20 rows of plump, sweet white kernels. Remains in the milk stage a long time, hence the name ‘evergreen’. A very good keeper, in fact in old times people would pull up the whole plant once mature, hanging the plants upside-down in a cool pantry; the ears would last well into the winter, in a semi-fresh state. Stowell’s Evergreen is excellent for fresh eating, canning, and freezing.
