GOLDEN BANTAM CORN (78 days heirloom)

1

Germ 7-14 days
Heirloom 1902
Prior to the twentieth century almost all of the cultivated varieties of corn in this country were white. In 1902 W. Atlee Burpee Co. introduced the yellow Golden Bantam and it became tremendously popular, changing the color preference of the entire country within a decade. Ears are 6-7” long and very well filled with big, starchy, flavorful kernels. 150 seeds

PLANTING:

Outdoors- 1” deep, late spring when soil is at least 60 degrees. Thin to 8-12” apart. Plant in blocks (4-5 rows, 24-36” apart) to help with pollination.

Harvest- Ready to be picked approximately 2 1/2 to 3 weeks after silks appear. Silks become dry and brown. The kernels should be plump and full. Test by pressing your fingertip into a kernel, looking for a “milky’ appearance. Best picked in the morning and refrigerate/cool right away.

Tips- Keep weeded and well watered. Plant in fertile soil and add a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer every few weeks until tassels form.
