Swedish Black Oats

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.
