Country Gentleman Sweet Corn

90 days. Introduced in 1890 by S.D. Woodruff & Sons. Sweet, delicious and milky with 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? Germinated quickly

What are the cons? Terrible yield

Review:

I had high hopes for this corn because of how quickly it germinated. Sadly, most of the stalks had no ears, and those that did, never matured. Those that did mature were skinny and/or short. I know heirloom corn is not like typical grocery store corn, but this was a total waste of garden space, time and energy.

Not impressed

What are the pros? Strong, tall, good germination

What are the cons? Taste, texture

Review:

I really wanted to love this corn. My research pointed out this being an heirloom variety that could really stick it to the hybrids, but it didn't deliver (other than looks). It grew really tall, and was a really impressive corn patch. The problem was the flavor and texture. Its OK, but unless I let it get overripe, this is the worst tasting sweet corn I've ever planted. There was barely a hint of sweetness and the kernels were tough. It was also a really late maturing crop, but that was to be expected. I had very few problems with bugs and critters, but maybe that's because it isn't all that sweet. I really wanted to keep the entire garden full of heirloom vegetables, but I can't see this corn making the cut.

What are the pros? Irregular rows

What are the cons? Straight rows on some, thin

Review:

I had a few plants that produced regular straight rows. The kernels were short and thin, not much flesh on these, they had a big cob in the center. The taste is good though.

What are the pros? good flavor, beautiful stalks

What are the cons? None

Review:

I picked some of the corn too early because of the growth description of 90 days. The corn stocks shot up beautiful and high and grew wonderfully where I live but the cobs weren't ready until today, Sep. 23rd. I started the seeds in my garden Mother's Day weekend. I will grow this again as it was helpful to have the corn done after my other garden items that I needed to put through the canning process so it wasn't as overwhelming of a canning season which I enjoyed. I wish I could upload a photo of the ears, they are big and beautiful.
