Description

Golden Bantam Sweet Corn is an open pollinator variety with 5-6 inch long ears of richly flavored quality corn.  Seeds can be saved for future harvests in subsequent years.  Golden Bantam can be served fresh, frozen or canned. The plants grow to about six feet and produce seven inch ears loaded with eight to ten rows of sweet, plump, golden kernels. Each ounce is approximately 110 seeds.  Turnaround time from planting to harvest is approximately 80 days. Seeds are open-pollinated and can be grown, harvested, and replanted endlessly.

 

Golden Bantam Corn is a very nutritional and tasty addition to any garden or Seed Bank. This food is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Thiamin and Folate.

 

This variety is an improved version of the old, standard yellow sweet corn. Instead of eight rows, this variety has ten to fourteen rows and the ears are slightly longer. It was improved to stay tender longer.  Golden Bantam “10 to 14 Row’ was introduced in 1922 by the Everett B. Clark Seed Company of Milford, Connecticut and was developed as a selection of the Golden Bantam.
