Description

The old standard yellow sweet corn that has been the home gardener's favourite since the beginning of the 20th century. Golden Bantam Corn has a fantastic sweet flavour that is great for fresh eating or freezing. Reliable, adaptable and very sweet for an open pollinated heirloom corn. Grows 1.5-1.8m tall and produces 13-17cm ears, each filled with golden yellow kernels. 78 days.

 

A farmer named William Chambers of Greenfield, Massachusetts had grown this variety for years. After his death, a friend of Chambers found some of the sweet corn seeds and sold them to W. Atlee Burpee. In 1902, Golden Bantam was first featured in a Burpee catalog.

 

Before 1900, most people thought that yellow corn was fit only for animal feed. Within a few years of the release of Golden Bantam, people in the United States began to favour yellow corn.
