Recommended Substitutes for Mirai Sweet Corn Seed Varieties

by Kristen Andersen

The Mirai® Sweet Corn seed breeding lines have been a popular choice for growers, but in recent years production challenges, seed crop failures, and the seed no longer being produced by the supplier have made it increasingly difficult for Harris Seeds to source the high quality Mirai® Sweet Corn seed that meets our valued customers’ expectations.

To guarantee that only the best quality Sweet Corn seed is available for your production, we’ve made the difficult decision to remove the Mirai® Sweet Corn series from the Harris Seeds product line. We hope to re-introduce this series with confidence in the future, and we will let you know when that happens.

To assist you in this transition, recommended substitute sweet corn seed varieties are described below. We hope you will find these suggestions helpful as you plan your next growing season, and welcome your questions or concerns regarding this change.

Sorry to hear about my beloved Mirai. Hopefully it will be available sometime in the future.

Thank you all for your interest in Mr. Mini Mirai Sweet Corn. We agree, it was a great variety! Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the variety will be returning, and due to its small size there are not many varieties like it. A couple of varieties to try in its place are Vision F1, a high quality yellow supersweet or American Dream F1, a bicolor supersweet with a slightly smaller ear, though not as small as Mr. Mini Mirai.

Any hope of seeing Mini Mirai produced in the future? It was a customer favorite.
