Golden Bantam Corn
This old-fashioned HEIRLOOM variety produces 8 rows of large, yellow kernels on 12-18 cm (5-7″) cobs. Plants grow 1.5-2m (5′) tall. Golden Bantam sweet flavour is fantastic for fresh eating or freezing on the day it is picked. About Golden Bantam Corn: A Greenfield, Massachusetts native named J. G. Pickett is credited with developing this marvelous variety of corn. Later, seed expert E. L. Coy sent it to Burpee with the note, "you now own the very richest and sweetest corn ever known." Isolate Golden Bantam at least 3km from other corn if you intend to save seed. Golden Bantam corn seeds are unusual because they are open pollinated and one of the few corn varieties that produce well in our climate but are also suitable for seed saving.
Matures in 85-95 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
