Country Gentleman Sweet Corn bears 8″, tender ears, two per stalk, that are filled with sweet, juicy kernels right up to the tip. The ears have no rows, and kernels are packed in a zigzag pattern and are also very deep and narrow, which gives it the alternate name of shoepeg corn. Corn lovers should try this Heirloom variety. Sweet Corn is one of the most popular vegetables; freshly picked corn-on-the-cob is simply hard to beat for delicious flavor.
The “3 Sisters” (corn, beans and squash) planted together in your garden make a great team. The beans fix nitrogen in the soil for nitrogen-loving corn. Corn will anchor your beans and act as a trellis. And squash will shade the thirsty roots of corn to retain moisture and help to smother weeds. This is a win-win combination of vegetables!
