I think Country Gentleman is a white "shoe peg" variety. Kernels aren't 
lined up in rows, but are irregularly "scattered" all over the cob. 
Kernels are deep and slender, ergo "shoe peg."

My corn (the pink popcorn stuff) is just beginning to tassel and silk. Has 
anybody grown a variety called "Bodacious"?
