(Triticum dicoccum); Spring Wheat
NOTE: Feb 4th--I am splitting this rather long list into "Fall Planted" and "Spring Planted". It will take me a few days to update the text and add more photos.
Strains of spring planted Emmer:
- Golden Spring Emmer, originally from Kusa
- 50 hand selected seeds in hulls
- 10 grams of seeds in hulls
On our homestead, we do not yet have a method to consistently crack the hulls for making flour. Highly ornamental, many people grow emmer for decorative use.
For reference, 100 seeds with hulls weighs around 3.5 grams.
