Southern Exposure Seed Exchange

Family heirloom from the Valsugana valley of Italy near Trento, via William Rubel. Originally brought to Italy from America, it evolved over hundreds of years to become the staple polenta corn of the valley. Introduced by SESE and Fedco Seeds 2009. Beautiful medium- to deep-red kernels are slightly pointed. Cornmeal has a pink cast, and makes a polenta with a remarkably rich, complex flavor. Plants grow 7-10 ft. tall - slightly smaller and faster maturing than other varieties we offer. Some tendency to lodge.

  • Certified Organic 
  • Heirloom 
  • Especially well-suited to the South-East 
  • 28g, ~100 seeds 

    Instructions -

    Plant these grains (field) when the soil is at least 55 degrees, or when dogwood leaves are the size of squirrel’s ears. 

    Flint corns tend to do well in wet and cold climates, they are especially common in the Northeast. They have pointed kernels in which the hard part of the kernel predominates, and they are especially good for cooking methods that involve boiling, such as polenta and johnnycakes. 

    Harvest for roasting when ears have just reached full size, or for dry corn when husks have fully yellowed.

    • Space plants at 12"-24" depending on variety height in 36" rows.
