Regular price $2.95
- 75 days. 5' tall.
- An old-timer introduced in 1902 and Golden Bantam Corn is still the most popular non-hybrid sweet corn.
- Thick, juicy kernels on 6"-7" long eight row ears and plenty of flavor remind us how corn used to taste.
- When the tassels are turning brown you want to pick it and cook immediately if you are to enjoy it at its best.
Planting Directions: Sow seed in spring after all danger of frost has past and soil temperature is between 60° and 95°. Plant seed 1” to 1 1/2” deep, 3-4 seeds per hill spaced 4”-6” apart. Plant in blocks of 2-4 rows to optimize germination. Corn is a heavy feeder especially of nitrogen. Plant in well prepared soil amended with rich compost or a complete garden fertilizer. Successive plantings at 2-4 week intervals assures a steady supply of corn for several weeks. Plant in full sun. Water moderately and increase watering when tassels appear.
