I have been growing this sweet corn for the past 5 years here in NE Texas, zone 8a. It always produces a great crop, plenty for fresh eating and for freezing. This is the corn my grandfather always grew, and it will be the one I always grow. Have tried a couple of others, but not the yield I get from Golden Bantam.
