Floriani Corn - Zea Mays
This stunningly red flint corn hails from Italy’s Valsugana Valley. Known for its unforgettable flavor and texture, the Floriani is an excellent staple for those interested in self-sufficiency. A rare corn, the Floriani produces excellent cornmeal and polenta. This heirloom was developed to be the staple corn for polenta in this valley.
Very productive and results in a deep yellow corn meal with a pink undertone.
