Spring Dinkel Spelt

Triticum spelta

spring-dinkleSpring growth habit spelt is very rare trait. The seed had been stored in my freezer for six years. I all but forgot I had it, and only a few kernels at that (about 14).  I am offering this in small amounts just to spread the risk of losing the cultivar. It was quite short compared to the Winter Dinkel I have grown in the past. Beyond this, I have little specific information regarding this wheat.

*I am offering this seed for the purpose of preservation. Grain fill in my region (northern Indiana) is less than one would expect in areas more suitable to raising spring wheat (cooler and more arid). This variety will need selection and adaptation to improve grain fill, yield and disease resistance in regions with frequent spring/summer rains, humidity and heat.
