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.

Review:

I loved the way this corn tasted. We has a drought here in NY this summer but this corn produced well and tasted delicious. I ate many raw while working in the field. I had very few with worms.

What are the pros? Really big ears

What are the cons? Not sweet

Review:

This produced really tall plants with huge ears. It takes a while for the ears to fill. The kernels are not large though even when we waited. We tried this in all it's stages and found it was not sweet like the corn we are used to. It's really neat to see the shoepeg pattern but we want a sweet tender corn and this didn't turn out that way for us. It might have been because the weather was so hot and dry.

What are the pros? Beautiful plants

What are the cons? Some won't develop properly

Review:

First of all this will be my 3rd year growing country gentleman. They are the most beautiful plants I have ever seen. The plants are a little slow and weak when they are young but get hardier and hardier as time goes. The plants are somewhat bug resistant because they develop at different rates. Because they develop at different rates not all corn develops into good cobs. The corn upon taste is not extremely sweet but hearty tasting. It has a texture I would describe as meaty/creamy. If you want the biggest baddest corn in the county go no further because these things are massive. The seed I save keeps getting better and the nieghbors corn won't pollinate it because these bloom later then super hybrids.

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.
