Description
Country Gentleman
96 days — 'Country Gentleman' is a very old sweet corn variety that took Frank Woodruff fourteen years of selective breeding to develop. When it was released, it was immediately well received and persisted as one of the most popular white sweet corn varieties, for both home and market growers, for many, many decades.

The stalks average seven to eight feet tall.  The ears reach about seven inches with irregular rows of white, sweet, shoe peg-shaped kernels.

Introduced in 1890 by Frank C. Woodruff of S. D. Woodruff & Sons, Orange, Connecticut and the following year by Peter Henderson & Company of New York.[1] Each ounce is approximately 200 seeds.

Great Corn!
I've been planting Country Gentleman corn for the past three years. The stalks consistently produce 3-4 ears averaging 8-9 inches long. I harvested two ears yesterday that were 14 inches long each! Great tasting, prolific Corn. It's the only variety I grow.
