“Good Day Sacramento” featured Crookham Company’s Amaize Sweet Corn when “Produce Man” Michael Marks visited the Amaize cornfields on July 25.
Marks selected Amaize as one of his summer produce picks in an article in the San Jose Mercury News, according to a news release.
Marks said the corn is “so tender, so sweet, so juicy,” in the release.
Marks is also known as the “Sherlock Holmes of Produce” because he takes the mystery out of fruits and vegetables.
Amaize is a new breed of white sweet corn from Caldwell, Idaho-based Crookham. It is grown in California by Alan Simonis and is sold at Raley’s, Bel Air and Nob Hill Foods.
Outside of California, Amaize is available at Dan’s Supermarkets, Lunds and Byerly’s, Marsh Supermarkets, Schnucks, Tops Markets and select farmers markets, according to the release.
