(Hordeum vulgare); 6-rowed; Hull-less; Awned; Fall-planted; Minimum 25 seeds

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.

Planted mid September, this barley was ready for harvest mid to late June on our southeast Michigan homestead. Kernels thresh free easily by hand.

This variety shows promise given that it is hull-less and awned to protect its heads from critter pilferage.

Limited Quantity: Limit 1 pack per person. I will ship only 1 pack and refund any additional packs if more than one is ordered.
