Harvest in 85 Days

Originally grown by William Chambers in Greenfield, Massachusetts, it was sold to W. Atlee Burpee and introduced into the Burpee catalog in 1902. Golden Bantam can be planted closer together than other varieties. Ears have 8 rows of golden-yellow kernels.

SOWING…Plant corn seed in full sun directly in the garden when the soil has warmed to at least 70 degrees F and nighttime temps do not dip below 60 degrees F. Corn requires full sun and fertile soil. Plant seed 1 ½ inches deep, 3-4 inches apart in blocks (4 ft. x 4 ft.) or rows 24 inches apart.

THINNING…When plants are 5 inches tall, thin to 10 inches apart. Corn is wind pollinated and crowded plants may not produce full ears.

GERMINATION…8-15 days; depending on soil temperature.

REMARKS…For continuous harvest, plant every 3 weeks until mid-summer. Pull soil up around plants when cultivating to help keep the wind from blowing the plants down. Pick when silks turn brown. Excellent for canning or freezing.
