Golden Bantam is an old variety (around since 1902). It is a medium sweet variety of sweet corn. The cobs are of very good quality if harvested when milk ripe. The conversion of sugar to starch proceeds more rapidly after being picked than with the extra sweet varieties. It is therefore essential that cobs are consumed fresh and within a day of picking. Pleasant flavour, less sweet than the hybrids. Speciality for amateur gardeners.
