We don't have much information on this hull-less barley other than it is a cultivar developed in China that was donated to the USDA in 1999 by Beijing's Chinese Academy of Science.

One of our earliest maturing cultivars, planted mid September, this barley is ready for harvest mid to late June on our southeast Michigan homestead. Kernels thresh free easily by hand.

Bai Chin Ke is a great choice for homesteaders given that it is hull-less and awned to protect its heads from critter pilferage.
