- Fresh looking greens and tassels of unshucked corn
- Peel back the husk to find bright plump kernels
- The longer corn is stored the more of its sugars will convert to starches, so eating quickly is best
- If you need to store, keep in a paper bag either on the counter or in the fridge
- If you see a wormhole on either the top or the bottom of the ear, there is most likely a corn worm inside. They don’t do too much damage (probably ate a few of the kernels) and are a good sign that the corn isn’t sprayed.
- Undeveloped kernels are a sign of poor pollination and all the kernels that are developed are just fine.
