Swedish Black Oats, also known as “Norrlandskt Tidig Svarthavre” (early black oats from Northern Sweden). Supposedly, one of the most northerly adapted oats in the world. This is a hulled oat that matures in less than 100 days from early spring planting. So far, it has been the earliest in my trials. The plants are 4 foot tall and did have some lodging issues during a period of heavy rainfall. My seedstock was sent to me from Ruurd Walrecht of Sweden. The hulled grains are smaller than the Hulless Spring Oat.
