I have been buying corn (whole piece, as attached photo) in the past few months in Whole Foods, but I don't see it in Whole Foods anymore since last week.

Is it seasonal product? I did not pay attention to it before, and almost never bought it before this year.

Thanks.

Generally yes, its seasonal. Peak season runs from May through September, but there are varieties grown in different parts of the USA and they may have slightly different "seasons". Where are you shopping for it? If you live in FL you may be able to get it fresh on the cob more of the year than farther north. Fresh cob corn ages fairly fast so the quality declines fairly fast too. Off season, look for frozen corn on the cob.

We had it at our local Kroger last weekend, but it was hulled and packaged with 4 on a tray with clear wrapping.
For me there is nothing better than fresh off the stalk, we used to get it picked that morning at roadside stands, but it's still good after a day or two with hulls. If you want it to taste good in winter, buy up a bunch in late summer, husk and drop into boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. Then plunge into ice water until cooled, and lay out on a towel to air dry. Then put into freezer bags or better yet use a Foodsaver, and freeze. They will taste almost like fresh when cooked later.

They grow 4 crops a year...in Hawaii.
Everyplace else, it's a summer crop.

I've never enjoyed frozen corn on the cob, but I like frozen whole kernel corn. Maybe try both and see if they fill your need.

Incidentally, does Whole Foods claim their corn is non-GMO? I used to work for a corn geneticist (who knew there was such a thing?), and he said nearly all corn shows GMO genes now. Pollen drift can contaminate even "organic" crops.
