Country Gentleman Sweet Corn

90 days. Introduced in 1890 by S.D. Woodruff & Sons. Sweet, delicious and milky; tender white kernels on 8” ears. The ears have no rows, as this is a shoepeg type, and kernels are packed in a zigzag pattern. One of the best heirloom sweet corns.

What are the pros? Oldtime flavor, in spades!

What are the cons? Does develop a few half-ears.

Review:

This is my alltime favorite sweet corn.. I grew up considering it a huge treat, and still do. Please note that this is NOT one of those genetically tampered-with "corn" varieties that just mostly taste like sticking your tongue in the sugarbowl. This has genuine old-style CORN flavor, not corn-candy flavor....and, yes, it's quite adequately sweet if you cook it within a day or two of picking. Try two things: 1) When it first hits milk stage, eat some raw. You'll thank me. 2) Make old-fashioned fried corn with plenty of black pepper. You'll thank me even louder. :) It does occasionally make half-ears, but hey, the yield is good enough you can afford to toss those to the wildlife if you choose.

What are the pros? Heirloom seeds

What are the cons? Not sweet

Review:

In all fairness, I'm not sure what company I bought my seeds from, but this is the same variety -- Country Gentleman sweet corn. We just harvested our first batch, and we were very disappointed. Barely a hint of sweetness. Tastes like I imagine field corn would taste. As others have mentioned, the stalks grow very tall! I put a radio in my corn patch to keep away the critters (turned up just enough not to annoy the neighbors, and which, by the way, works!), but now I'm not so sure they aren't welcome to all the corn they want.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Some cobs underdeveloped

Review:

Amazing flavor! This corn grew fast and tall, we had a crazy storm come through and knocked the entire crop over, but my his and stood it up with stakes and it is all doing fine and producing well! My only dislike would be that even with both my husband and I pulling tassels and helping along the pollination, some ears only developed half of the kernels. The ones that did fully develop were extremely flavorful and big, at least 8", and 3 to 4 cobs per plant!

What are the pros? Grew fast

What are the cons? Flavor was ok, yielded ok

Review:

This corn germinated ok and grew into giant corn trees! Probably 12 feet high!!! And the beautiful red silk that grew out the top of each corn was brilliant. Very cool! Due to the corn's height, of course a few toppled over. I didn't hill them much though, only added compost. Harvested the corn today and was half disappointed with the results. I picked the corn because all of the silk was dried up and the ears were tipping outward; but many of the ears, I'd say about half, weren't developed properly. The stalks were shaken and there was plenty of wind and the plants were in excellent health. Not sure why some of the corn didn't form properly. Also, I got a few corn that had straight rows instead of the wonky rows as shown and described. Weird. The flavor is ok, and the kernels are kinda small. The squirrels LOVE this corn, and I'm surprised any critter could reach any of it. I will try another variety next year. Sorry Country Gentleman!

What are the pros? Excellent flavor and to freeze

What are the cons? Susceptible to wind damage

Review:

Outstanding sweet corn. Last summer was our first experience not growing a hybrid and we're never going back. Just as it ripened a huge storm came through and blew over all the corn, so we cut down all the stalks, cut the kernels off the cobs and froze it all. It has been a delicious treat all winter long. Any hybrid we've frozen has been mushy when cooked and just had a flavor that wasn't as good as fresh but this tasted like it fresh off the cob every time. It will be our first choice from here on out. Grateful we found it.
