Sardinian Barley

sardinian 1I received this barley from Italy, supposedly from a Sardinian shepherd. At first I believed it was a Sardinian landrace called “S orgiu sardu”. I later learned that there are no landrace 2 row barley varieties from Sardinia. I am now referring to this as Sardinian Barley. Irregardless of it’s history, this is a large kerneled, robust variety with suitable malting properties.
