The old 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, where they found their way in his catalog in 1902.   The plants grow to about six feet and produce seven inch ears loaded with sweet, plump, golden kernels.  Sow seeds 3” apart and 1” deep after last frost.  Keep moist.  Thin to 6-9” apart when plants are 2-3”  tall.  You will need a minimum of a 10 foot by 10 foot area to ensure proper pollination. 78 days.  100 untreated seeds
