Selecting the Perfect Ear of Corn
Corn is ready to be picked as soon as the ears have completely filled out. If the end of the ear is rounded or blunt rather than pointed, the ears are ready. The silks also dry up when the ears are almost ready to be picked.
You can also pull back a bit of the husk and check to see if the ear looks well filled and the kernels are creamy yellow or white. Many gardening guides tell you to pierce a kernel with your nail to test for ripeness. The ear is ripe when the liquid is white and milky.
