Grain preservationist Eli Rogosa crossed two Eastern European landraces to create Banatka. Its parental lines include Bánkúti, known for its rich flavor, and the Hungarian Ukrainka, productive and adaptable, with excellent baking quality. 

Please use the drop-down menu to select between packet sizes, minimum:

      a) 50 choice hand selected seeds
      b) 7 grams (1/4 ounce)
      c) 28 grams (1 ounce)
      d) 113 grams (quarter pound)

      Banatka greatly inspired our foray into grain growing with how well it thrived in our southeast Michigan garden its first season grown.
