Sweet Corn Country Gentlemen Vegetable Seeds (Zea mays) 30+Seeds
Sweet Corn Country Gentlemen HEIRLOOM. From 1890, this unusual white corn has irregular rows and great flavor.
Country Gentleman is one of the most unusual sweet corns around because its white kernels are arranged irregularly, not in rows. The kernels are also very deep and narrow, hence its alternate name, Shoe-peg. Developed around 1890 in the Connecticut River Valley, it is a much bigger form of a very old variety. In fertile soils, it can yield three ears per stalk, sometimes more. It is a beautiful corn with wonderful texture and flavor. It holds its peak quality much longer than most heirloom corns.
