Description

Country Gentleman Shoepeg Sweet Corn Heirloom Seeds 

Heirloom white sweet corn known to produce
large ears of up to 4 or 5 to a stalk
depending on soil conditions.


Sweet irregular rows of narrow
kernels with wonderful texture.
This is one of the best heirloom
sweet corn varieties, and the odd arrangement
 of the kernels make it special, as well. 

Days To Maturity: 90-95

Approximately 60 seeds per packet.


Botanical Name: Zea mays.

Planting:

Corn needs warm soil (65-85F) to germinate well,
in moist but not overly wet conditions.
Corn is wind-pollinated, so plant in
blocks of at least 4 rows.
Plant seed 1 in deep, 4-8 in apart,
in rows 24-26 in apart, depending
on the size of the variety.
Thin to 8-12 in apart once sprouted.
SPECIAL NOTE: Untreated corn seed is particularly
vulnerable to poor germination or failure
if planted in too cool or wet conditions.
Check with your local agriculture department
for known pests and pest controls.


How To Harvest Country Gentleman
Shoepeg Sweet Corn Heirloom Seeds


Allow corn to mature on the stalk.
This typically requires four to six weeks
after the eating stage.
Look for fully developed

kernels inside brown dry husks.
Pick corn on a cool,
dry day when foliage is dry.
Pull back husks and
hang ears upside down in a cool,
dry well-ventilated area.
Check corn often for any signs of mold or moisture.
Discard any ears that show signs of mold or mildew.
Turn ears to dry evenly.
Hold the ear of corn over an open paper bag.
Twist the kernels off the cob by hand,
allowing them to fall into the bag.
Store seeds in an airtight container in
a cool, dark area until spring.
