Cajun Grilled Corn Recipe

5015 Golden Bantam
The firm texture of the kernels and sugar content make this corn the best we tried at grilling.
Old heirloom standard yellow sweet corn that has been the home gardener's favorite since the beginning of the 20th century. A farmer named William Chambers of Greenfield, Massachusetts had grown this variety for years. After his death, a friend of Chambers found some of the sweet corn seeds and sold them to W. Atlee Burpee.
In 1902, Golden Bantam was featured in a Burpee catalog. Before 1900 most people thought that yellow corn was fit only for animal feed. Within a few years, people in the United States began to favor yellow corn.
The plants grow to about six feet and produce seven inch ears loaded with eight rows of sweet, plump, golden kernels. 78 days.
