Look for:
corn ears with green husks, fresh silk and tight rows of kernels.

husks with brown spots and dry, yellowed stems. Do not buy corn ears that have kernels with gaps between them and have brittle silks.

Seasonality: Mid to late summer

Storing Corn

Refrigerate corn with husks on for use within 1-2 days. If  corn is unhusked, put ears in a plastic bag and refrigerate until preparation time.

Preparing Corn

Remove the husks immediately before cooking.
