There are a few symptoms and signs, to picking the perfect corn on the cob.
  • Look for tiny brown holes, towards the top of the husk 
  • Brush your fingers along the corn, and feel for plump kernels 
  • Look for brownish/white corn hair that is sticky to the touch 
  • Look for bright green and tight husks
