Between 1930 and 1940 there were many varieties of red corn grown in Ticino, the Italian-language canton in southern Switzerland. The name means simply “red corn from Ticino”. This variety has large ears, often two per robust 8-foot plant, with little susceptibility to wind. The kernels are rounded, a deep brick color, arranged in 12 to 14 rows per ear. Well suited to planting at high elevations. Some yellow off-types will appear, so be sure to select only for red seed. Outstanding flavor—a bit nuttier than Floriani—either as polenta or baked into cornbread.
