Organically Grown Golden Bantam Corn Seed
The old standard yellow sweet corn that has been the home gardener's favorite since the
beginning of the 20th century. A farmer named William Chambers of Greenfield,
Massachusetts had grown this variety for years. After his death, a friend of Chambers
found some of the sweet corn seeds and sold them to W. Atlee Burpee.
In 1902, Golden Bantam was featured in a Burpee catalog. Before 1900 most people thought that yellow corn was fit only for animal feed. Within a few years, people began to favor yellow corn.
The plants grow to about six feet and produce seven inch ears loaded with sweet, plump, golden kernels.
