(Triticum durum); Spring wheat; Awned;
Widely grown throughout the Middle East, the high protein grains of durum wheats are the hardest of the wheats. This means their gluten content is not readily available and Blue Durum is better suited as a pasta flour instead of a bread flour. Gorgeous awned heads give Blue Durum an ornamental appeal and the wheat is preferred for wheat weaving.
