Mirai Sweet Corn in Ventura or Santa Barbara Area
Heard all sorts of good things about a triple sweet, sweet corn called Marai. Anyone found it in the Ventura or Santa Barbara area or for that matter anywhere in Southern Californa?
re: Kitchen Queen
Thanks. Not sure though this will be the type of corn that organic farmers will take to as my understanding is the organic people are not open minded to genetic engineering. Corn almost always requires some chemical spraying. My only preference is for the best produce that I can find. Mirai sweet corn is a new hybrid developed in the midwest for superior sugar and texture. It doesn't ship well so it is not available easily. Thanks again.
Checking the websites for Mirai Corn, apparently there is NO genetic engineering involved. This is old fashioned hybrid sweet corn developed in Illinois and available in farmers markets all over Illinois. The word "mirai" is a Japanese word referring to seeing the future. It is also grown in Japan.
If the information is correct, and the product were to be available locally, I think organic farmers and farmers markets would indeed be open to this corn.
I can't verify the information, this is only based on the website info.
