DESCRIPTION

Regarded as the "King of All White Sweet Corn Varieties!" This is among the oldest sweet corns that are still in production, predating 1949. Large 8-9"L ears boast plump, sweet, white tender kernels in 16-18 rows. 8'H stalks. Matures slowly over a long period, hence the name evergreen. Keeps longer than most corns which makes it one of the best heirloom varieties for fresh markets, canning,freezing, and garnished with butter for dinner!

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
