DIRECT SOW WHEN SOIL TEMPERATURE IS ABOVE 60°F
DO NOT START INDOORS
Plant your Golden Bantam Corn directly into the ground when soil temperatures are between 60-65°F. Continuously plant corn every 2 weeks for a continual crop all summer.
In sandy soil, plant your corn 2" deep, or in clay type soils, plant your seeds 1" deep.
Great when boiled or grilled directly on the cob. You may also sheer the kernels off the cob, blanch and freeze for a future use. This corn does particularly well when canning as well.
Harvest your Golden Bantam Corn when the silk has started to turn brown, or when you have inspected the cobs and found them to be ready for use.
Harvesting corn for seed is simple.
Allow your corn stalks to fully dry and turn brown. Once your corn is dried, the kernels should be dry and hard to the touch. Harvest your corn cobs and twist the cobs in your hands to break off the kernels from the cob. Store you corn kernels in a cool dry area for use in next years growing season.
What is Treated Seed?
Treated seeds are specially coated to increase germination viability and prevent damage from fungus or insects. Depending on availability, we may substitute treated or non-treated seed for this variety. The resulting produce grown from treated seed is no different than untreated, but care must be taken when handling treated seeds. Do not allow pets or livestock to eat treated seed, also avoid having children handle seed that has been treated.
