An older but similar version of the Shoepeg Country Gentleman) type of white sweet corn. Doesn,t quite match up to Country Gentleman but is a reasonable alternative for someone who wishes to grow this type of corn and wants something different. Like Country Gentleman it makes good cream style corn.
