This is a gorgeous flint corn, growing to a stately 10 to 12 feet in height. Kernels are deep maroon in color, each with a pointed tip. The variety is an Italian family heirloom from the Valsugana valley east of Trent in Lombardy. The coarsely ground meal, speckled with red from the seed coat, makes the best polenta you will ever taste. Slightly sweeter than the Roter Tessinermais.
