Crookham in Action
The Augmented Sweet Corns have become a favorite with grocers and farmers markets as a great customer experience turns to customer loyalty and repeat business. It’s difficult to find anything that compares with the high-quality taste and the burst in the bite of the Augmented varieties. These hybrids also find favor with growers for their solid agronomics. Nirvana and Eden fall into the category of being a mid-season and AP-426 is a main season and has an added benefit of a boosted disease package.
