Ever since it was first introduced by W. Atlee Burpee in 1902, this corn has been the go-to standard for early yellow sweet corn. Before this variety was introduced, white corns were considered the premium sweet corns, but the exceptional flavor of Golden Bantam flipped the popular taste to yellow. This corn will grow 5-6 feet tall with 5-7 inch ears that are plump full of juicy kernels. This corn is just wonderful eaten fresh or frozen.

Growing Tips: Large-eared and double-eared varieties will not perform well if they are too crowded. They should be spaced 12 inches apart. Tillering (side shoot/sucker production) is usually caused by stress from under-watering and/or over-fertilizing when the plants are young.

Fertilization Tips: Apply 3-5 pounds of organic fertilizer per 100 row feet to significantly improve yields. Compost and manures are excellent amendments for good corn production.

Seed Spec: Min. germ. standard: 80%. Usual seed life: 1 year.

Certifications: USDA Certified Organic and Demeter Biodynamic Certified
