You beat me to it. Corn's ripe when the tassel is turning brown. White/green tassel shows the sugars haven't fully formed and the corn is immature.

As to the original question: over the last several years a number of early ripening varieties have been introduced. Here in Southern Maryland that means corn usually becomes available the second or third week of June. Further south (say Virginia or the Carolinas) would be earlier.

Also, as mentioned, corn varieties have been bred that maintain their sweetness longer than a few decades ago, several days up to a week is common.
