Availability: Out of stock



This variety from 1902 made yellow sweet corn popular. It was created by a skilled gardener in Greenfield, Massachusetts who loved to have the earliest corn in town. Golden Bantam quickly rose to the top since it sprouted in cool soil better than all other corns of the time, and growers could make big money with it. For old- fashioned corn flavor and early plantings, it's still outstanding. Golden Bantam grows 5-6’ tall and produces 5-7” ears, each filled with golden yellow kernels. They have a fantastic sweet flavor that is great for fresh eating or freezing.
