CNN cites UMaine Extension in report on how to not waste produce 

Information from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension was included in the CNN report, “How to stop throwing away your veggies and fruit.” The article included tips on how to choose the freshest fruits and vegetables, clean and store them properly and be assured at least a few more days of usable life. The report states that according to UMaine Extension’s guidelines on storing garden produce, corn should be eaten immediately, but if it’s still in the husk, it might last in the fridge for one to two days.
