Celebrate Idaho Agriculture
Why is Idaho corn so tender and sweet? Local sweet corn is picked fresh daily and available in most stores the very next day. This is critical as the sugars in corn turn to starch after the ear is picked from the stalk, so buying the freshest corn also means you are getting the sweetest corn on the market. Idaho’s fertile soils, irrigation water, hot, arid climate and long growing season means you can enjoy sweet corn all summer long into the beginning of fall! Idaho’s major sweet corn producers are located in the Southwestern and South-central regions of the state. Look for Idaho Preferred® sweet corn at your local farmers markets, roadside stands and grocery stores.
