'Sunshine' Sweet Corn Certified Naturally Grown Seed
A 2004 Victory Seed Company Reintroduction

75 days —  In 2004, we were excited to announce the re-release of this old classic, short-season, sweet corn variety that had disappeared from availability. We are always looking for interesting and rare varieties that were developed for a broad range of growing conditions. This offering is an example to this commitment.

'Sunshine' was developed at the North Dakota Agricultural Experimental Station (AES) by A. F. Yeager to thrive in areas with shorter growing seasons. Sunshine is the stabilized cross of Golden Bantam [1902, W. Atlee Burpee] and Gills Early Market [Gill Brother's. Seed Co., Portland, Oregon]. Originally released in 1927, it remained very popular, under several name variations, until seed companies began favoring the sale of unstable, F1 hybrids and last sold commercially in 1992.

The stalks grow to about five to six feet in height with ears setting about one foot from the ground. It retains the good, old-time corn flavor of its Golden Bantam parentage but reaches roasting ear stage three to ten days earlier. The ears are six to eight inches long averaging twelve rows of golden yellow kernels. It did great in our Oregon and Tennessee 2003 trial, as well as in our seed production grow outs in 2004 and 2005. We look forward to hearing how it does in your garden. Each 0.5 ounce is approximately 50 seeds.

Rare and very limited supply.
