Heirloom Sweet Corn

This year on the farm I will be planting Stowell's Evergreen a white sweet corn. The original strain of this variety was bred by Nathaniel Newman Stowell, who was born May 16, 1793 in New Ipswich, Massachusetts. After years of refining this strain, Nathaniel sold two ears of seed for $4.00 to a friend who agreed to use it only for his private use. His "friend" then turned around and sold the seed for $20,000 and it was introduced to the seed trade in 1848. After 150 years, his variety is still the leading white variety for home gardens and market growers.
