The 5-foot-tall corn stalks with 6-inch ears of Yellow
sweet corn grow in many gardens. Developed by Burpee in 1902, the
"Golden Bantam" remains a popular open-pollinated cultivar, or variety,
of corn. "Golden Bantam" corn plants thrive when eight hours or more of
direct sunlight and warm temperatures are provided. Approximately 82
days after planting, the ears of tender corn are ready to harvest.
