Amaize Sweet Corn is a 20+ year labor of love between George Crookham and Bruce Hobdey. The duo sought to perfect the taste and texture of Amaize Sweet Corn beginning in 1989 after discovering a type of corn with a crunch and a pop that differentiated itself from the textures of other corns, which tended to get too soft when cooked. After 22 years and ten thousand variations of testing, they perfected Amaize Sweet Corn!

"Amaize is my life's work. I have tasted literally over 50,000 ears of corn over 40 years and together with my breeding partner, Bruce Hobdey, pursued an insatiable quest for sweet corn perfection! Amaize is hands-down the best sweet corn ever. And now, we want to share our discovery with the rest of the world," said George Crookham, CEO of Crookham Company.

Amaize Sweet Corn is available for a limited time during the warm summer months and is sold exclusively in select stores and market areas including Portland, Minneapolis, Sacramento, Buffalo, New Orleans, San Antonio and Toronto, Canada.
