Golden Bantam Corn is a warm weather crop that should be planted after the last frost. Plant in blocks of three to six rows to promote good pollination. Crops do best in well-drained, fertile soil with plenty of water. More than any other crop, it is important to harvest Golden Bantam Corn at the right time to ensure perfect flavor. When it’s ready, you must harvest your corn without delay! You’ll know it’s ripe for the picking when the silks begin to wither and turn brown, the ear feels plump and turns away from the stem and the ends are rounded instead of pointed. Ears typically measure six to seven inches in length at harvest. Corn ripens quickly in warm weather, so keep a close watch on your crops. Each plant will produce an average of two ears per stalk.
