Golden Bantam Sweet Corn Heirloom Seeds
Golden Bantam Sweet Corn
Delectably sweet and juicy, this popular variety is the one that made yellow corn fit for the table. 5 foot stalks bear 2 ears of old fashioned flavor. Easy to grow. Terrific for the gardens with limited space as well as market growers.
- Burpee introduced this variety in 1902
- Before this only white corn was considered edible and yellow was for livestock
- In 1890 William Chambers bred this variety to be the earliest specialty corn where he sold it at road side stands
- Golden Bantam quickly rose to the top since it sprouted in cool soil better than all other corns of the time
