(Zea mays) The original strain of Golden Bantam was
introduced by W. Atlee Burpee in 1902. This
improved strain was selected for longer ears and
greater tenderness. Produces an early main crop
for home gardeners and market growers. Excellent
sweet flavor, ideal for freezing and fresh eating.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost
has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant
in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin
seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does
best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water. ± 2,000 seeds/lb
