HEIRLOOM: The sweetest of the sweet is the deserved reputation. Some are larger, some earlier, but none sweeter.

Mature Plant Size 60-72 inches tall (5-6 feet)
SKU 5CORNG
"Golden Cross Bantam" is always the big winner in taste tests for sweetness in garden corn. Plants are about 5 to 6', and ears are 6 to 7" long.

When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location and plant after the last frost. Soil should be fertilized with vegetable food and cultivated. To insure good pollination sow seed in blocks of at least 4 rows side by side rather than one long row. For succession, plant every 3 weeks until early summer.
Care: Cultivate weekly or mulch to control weeds. Fertilize when plants are 12-18”/30-46 cm.
Harvesting: Pick when silks turn brown and ears are firm. Test by piercing a few kernels with thumbnail. The skin should be tender and the juice should look “milky”. to get the best tast, pick, cook, and eat the same day.

      Comments about American Meadows Heirloom Golden Cross Bantam Corn Seeds:

      SOWED DIRECTLY IN MID MAY THROUGH EARLY JUNE. PLANTED TOO CLOSE TOGETHER BUT FRIEND HAD ME THIN THEM OUT BUT I WASN'T EDUCATED ENOUGHT TO REALLY UNDERSTAND HOW OR WHAT I WAS DOING SINCE I HAD NOT GROWN CORN BEFORE..I ONLY LOST TWO OR THREE AFTER MOVING THEM, BUT I DID NOT PLANT ENOUGH AT THE RIGHT SPACING TO POLLINATE WELL AND I DID NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT BY HAND UNTIL AFTERWARDS. BUT THEY DID GIVE OFF A GOOD YEILD, AT LEAST TWO EARS PER STALK, NICE BIG ONES, KERNALS THAT DID DEVELOPE WERE SWEET AND BIG, JUST DID NOT FILL EAR UP. ENDED FEEDING THE EARS TO MY DOGS FOR TREATS, WHICH THEY EAT UP EVERY INCH.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
