What are the pros? read about winter tomatoes...
What are the cons? then treat this plant the same
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
