I can't say enough about this corn. It to sooooo good I can't eat other corn on the cob anymore. I'm NOT exaggerating - it's that kind of good. The kernels just slide right off into your mouth. Grew very well for me.

Mirai is very, very tender and it's also extra sweet. I wish it had a little more "corn" flavor, but overall it's still a keeper.
