NEW for 2020
This ancient grain dates back to the time of Biblical Israel and to Neolithic Europe. The plants are very tall (64 inches) with strong stems that resist lodging. Both drought and wet tolerant (not standing water) and a high degree of disease resistance. It can be cooked as a hot cereal or milled into flour for bread and noodles. Black Winter Emmer is high in fiber and protein (24 grams in one cup). Surprisingly, this wheat is still fairly rare and unavailable to consumers. It does have a tight hull which needs removed before consuming.
I planted on October 1st 2018 and harvested on July 24th 2019
Black Winter Emmer was grown in the US back in the early 20th Century. You can read about it in this 1911 USDA Farm Bulletin https://naldc.nal.usda.gov/download/ORC00000177/PDF
My initial seed stock came from a farmer in Kentucky back in 2015. I am selling this seed with the hull intact which is crucial for good germination.
