One of the most popular white sweet corn varieties of the early 20th Century.
Country Gentleman
Sweet Corn

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 introduced, it was immediately well received. It wasn't long until many other seed companies began offering it, and it persisted as one of the most popular white sweet corn varieties, for both home and market growers, for many decades. Its stalks average seven to eight feet tall, producing ears that reach about seven inches in length with irregular rows of white, sweet, shoe peg-shaped kernels.

'Country Gentleman' was released in 1890 by Frank C. Woodruff of S. D. Woodruff & Sons, Orange, Connecticut and then the following year by Peter Henderson & Company of New York.[1] A. W. Livingston proclaimed its merits when they listed it as a new variety in their 1893 seed annual.[2] 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.

Stood well and endured the heat.
I planted this last year, it did very well. It was almost as sweet as some of the "sugar hybrids". It stood well and endured the heat.
