Seed Savers Exchange Corn, Golden Bantam
The original strain of Golden Bantam was introduced by W. Atlee Burpee in 1902. This improved strain was selected for longer ears and greater tenderness. Produces an early main crop for home gardeners and market growers. Excellent sweet flavor, ideal for freezing and fresh eating. 70-85 days.
This crop can be direct seeded into soil 2-3 weeks after the last spring frost when the soil has warmed.
Make sure that your soil is well fertilized as this crop is a heavy feeder and takes a lot of nutrients from the soil. Consider adding compost to the soil the year before you plant.
