Corn Seeds - Country Gentleman
Heavy yields, as it is common to have three or more ears per plant. Many of the old catalogs say that Country Gentleman would stay tender or keep longer on the stalk than most. (Most OP sweet corns have a short window in which to pick them at their peak sweetness/tenderness.) Country Gentleman is regarded by old timers as the finest roasting corn, it was more widely used later as a sweet cream corn when canning became popular. Corn can be eaten fresh or canned. "Without a doubt the sweetest and most tender of all sweet corns." 1896 Peter Henderson & Co. about Country Gentleman Corn Seed. "One of the very sweetest and delicious of all sugar corns." John Salzer Seed Co. 1912 on Country Gentleman.
