Corn, Golden Bantam (Zea mays) seeds, organic

$3.95

Family:  Grass (Poaceae)

Annual. 80 days to maturity.  Standard open pollinated sweetcorn on powerful plants that produce 2 ears per plant.  Corn bursting with broad, golden kernels.    Excellent old-fashioned sweet corn flavor.  This type is the original open-pollinated sweet corn and is preferred by many, which is partly due to the way it grows, and its general applicability to summer growing across the temperate zone, and is also a matter of taste.  This corn is sweet but not super-sweet.  This leaves room to taste some corn along with your sugar.  Can be planted in up to three successions for ongoing supply of excellent fresh corn for the table.  Corn prefers rich soil and full sun, regular watering.  Plant 1/2 inch deep and thin to 10 inches apart.  Side dress with chicken manure after the plants attain 6 inches or so.  Cultivate often to soften soil around plants and push the soil up around the stalks as they grow, to improve resistance to wind.  After the plants reach knee high, you can cultivate and weed them one more time and then scatter crimson clover seed under them and water it in.  This will cover the soil, feed the corn with nitrogen, and make it so you don’t have to weed again, all the way through to harvest.
