Sweet Corn - Open Pollinated Favorites

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I mentioned elsewhere that I grow Mexican Black and Stowell's Evergreen sweet corns. I'm still looking for a good OP yellow sweet corn. Suggestions? What do you grow?

We still like the original Golden Bantum. It is not quite as "sweet" as some of the newer varieties but it has the taste we love.

I tried golden bantam and did not like it.I trialed the New old heirloom, Double Standard and loved it.It is a bicolor,but you can plant the yellow kernals for yellow,if you'd like.It's a cross btwn two old heirlooms.So it's not an heirloom itself, but is O.P.

Do you trade seed? I have an extensive seed list of OP veges,heirloom flowers and useful herbs that I trade.I have some extra double standard on it,for trade. Interested?
