1902-LO  Zea maize

(Sweet) 85 days.

A heritage variety from 1902, Golden Bantam changed the stereotype that yellow corn was just for cattle. Surpasses the old white varieties in sweetness but maintains that old-fashioned corn flavour. Ears are 7" and narrow, growing on stalks 5' to 6' high. Ripens a little later than Ashworth, so plant at the same time and get an extended harvest.

~155 seeds/30g

CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND LOCALLY-GROWN
Grown by Wild Rose Farm in Gilbert's Cove, NS

(Sucrée) 85 jours.  Une variété patrimoniale datant de 1902, la «Golden Bantam» a complètement détruit le stéréotype que le blé d’Inde jaune était seulement pour les animaux d’élevage.  Celle-ci surpasse les vieilles variétés blanches  au niveau de son goût sucré, tout en conservant la saveur de maïs «a l’ancienne».  Ses oreilles étroites de 7 pouces poussent sur des tiges d’entre 5 et 6 pouces de haut.  Elle mûrie un peu après le «Ashworth»,  alors semer en même temps pour prolonger la période de récolte.
