Corn, Golden Bantam

HEIRLOOM. This variety made yellow sweet corn popular. Orig. 1902
This variety made yellow sweet corn popular. When Burpee introduced it in 1902, people only wanted white corn white signified refinement and quality. It was created by a skilled gardener in Greenfield, Massachusetts who loved to have the earliest corn in town. Golden Bantam quickly rose to the top since it sprouted in cool soil better than all other corns of the time, and growers could make big money with it. The stalks are only 5 ft. tall and often bear two 5 1/2 to 61/2" long ears apiece. For old- fashioned corn flavor and early plantings, it's still outstanding.
