How can I be sure the corn on the cob I purchase is wholesome and of superior quality?

Choose ears of sweet corn that have fresh, green, succulent husks. The silk ends should be free of decay while the stem ends shouldn't appear too discolored or dry. Kernels should be plump, soft, and milky.
Avoid ears with undeveloped kernels, very large kernels or dark yellow kernels because they are likely to be tough and not very sweet.
