Golden Queen is a good yellow hybrid. It is not as popular as Silver Queen. I often plant it in alternate rows with Silver Queen which effectively gives me the equivalent of the bi-color BiQueen which I think is more delicious than either Silver or Golden Queen. Note; I would never use a spacing less than 12 inches and in a dry season that would be too crowded. I drill 16 - 18 inches in 42 inch rows. Don't get many nubbins that way.
