There's a difference between "fresh" corn and corn picked the same morning. You can measure it by time zones.
I know. Jerry Suter told me. I watched his crew pick corn this morning. By now that corn, picked a couple hours ago, is being sold in those familiar red trailers in Bluffton, Pandora, Lima, Findlay, Kenton, Wapakoneta, and some other towns that I can't remember.
"Fresh picked" is a grocery term as Jerry sees its. It really means one, two, three or more days old. Not Suter corn. The corn you buy today is picked today.
