Mensagem:  milho verde is corn on the cob (the cob is the espiga)

palha de milho is corn husk

The husk is the outside leaves on the cob. When we clean an ear of corn we tear off the husks. You can say "husk the corn" which means to take off the husks or you can say "clean the corn" which means the same thing.
