This is among the oldest sweet corn that is still in production, predating 1849. It is still a favorite of many, producing tasty white kernels. The plants used to be pulled up when completely ripe, and hung upside-down in a cool pantry; the ears would last well into the winter, in a semi-fresh state. In 1873, the seeds sold for 25 cents per pint.

What are the pros? Easy and delicious!

What are the cons? None at all

Review:

this corn grew with very little bother. I planted it in my prepared spot. I watered the seeds a few times then literally went on vacation. I came back to beautiful little seedlings. I think I may have watered this corn plot a total of 5 times throughout a very hot summer here in Vermont. We had a lot of dry spells with no rain and it held its own. It grew beautifully, majestically towering over everything else in my community garden. I have gotten 2 ears off of each stalk and the grow very large as well. I am quadrupling my plot for this corn next year. Also we have a very short season in northern Vermont and it was even shorter this year due to the very late departing winter. Everything was 1 month behind here. This did very well. It Did not mind the cold or heat. Good for temperature extremes for sure! It taste delicious. Not overly sweet but so good! I did not need butter or salt. I cannot reccomend this corn enough. Grew the summer of 2019

What are the pros? read about winter tomatoes...

What are the cons? then treat this plant the same

Review:

I have grown Stowell's for a number of years and I adore this plant. I plant it with beans and squash, providing minimal fertilizer and I don't water it unless it shows stress (maybe 3 times in 5 yrs). Corn can grow nice deep roots to find water and nutrients and resist lodging better for it. Heirlooms are resilient and efficient growers. Each year these plants provide me with at least three, if not four ears per plant and I've even seen five on a couple. I don't pick this corn fresh anymore, even though its quite yummy, I pull the whole plant before the first hard freeze and then keep the plants in the wood shed to harvest ears at the pace we eat them. The description is not kidding, this corn's super power is its ability to extend your fresh corn eating season, just like a winter tomato. I've read a few reviews commenting on lack of flavor or toughness and these both baffle me, because the four ears we ate last week were great and its February - I harvested the plants October 8th

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? So tall I couldn't reach ears

Review:

In 2018 we grew Golden Bantam, Country Gentleman, & Stowell's Evergreen corn. The Stowell's won in taste & texture and we will grow lots more next year. The other two varieties went in the compost. Like other's have commented -these non-hybrid/ non-gmo varieties are not quite as sweet as you might be used to, but they're better for you. Also make sure they get enough water in the hot summer months as that can help the plant produce better flavor. We watered every day in July since we had no rain. Ours was juicy & tender. My family loved this corn & we ate it all before we got to save any seed. We will triple the order next year. My stalks surprisingly reached 8-10 ft tall & produced a minimum of 2-3 ears per stalk.

What are the pros? Great taste

What are the cons? Short Kernels

Review:

Planted these Mid-May, spaced 6 inches apart in rows a foot apart in raised beds. Interplanted with pole beans. By late July and August, corn was well over the heads of everyone in my family, which is hard to beat my little brothers 6.2. My father even questioned whether or not it was field corn it was so high. Despite its height, the close spacing didn't seem to have any effect on it and they remained erect despite "normal" winds (not lusty gales though). The foliage was long and full. Produced a good amount of corn, about two-three per plant. Kernels had a good white juice to them and great sweet taste without being too sweet. Not as sweet as sweet corn is typically, but still had a great taste. The kernels are shorter than "normal" corn, which is fairly unnoticeable until bitting into, and also have farther slightly farther apart rows (Not as jam-packed as typical sweet corn). Kernels are undeniably white without a streak of yellow to them. All in all, I'll be growing these again.

What are the pros? Beautiful stalks, over 9 ft

What are the cons? No taste, very bland

Review:

First time I planted this corn. All reviews stated good corn taste. Not so... I tasted it young, older, older still. No flavor. I was planning on selling on roadside, but didn't want to offer corn with no taste. I am now drying it in hopes that I might be able to grind it into corn meal. I froze some, but will not use it alone. Will mix with my yellow corn. Our season was hot this year and the corn grew beautifully with strong healthy stalks. Some stalks producing more than two ears. Corn was bland. Will not grow again.
