This old-fashioned HEIRLOOM variety produces 8 rows of large, yellow kernels on 12-18cm (5-7″) cobs. Plants grow 1.5-2m (5′) tall. Golden Bantam’s sweet flavour is fantastic for fresh eating or freezing on the day it is picked. First introduced to the market in 1902 by W. Atlee Burpee. Isolate Golden Bantam at least 3km from other corn if you intend to save seed. Golden Bantam corn seeds are unusual because they are open pollinated and one of the few corn varieties that produce well in our climate but are also suitable for seed saving. This is an excellent variety of corn for seed savers.
Matures in 85-95 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
