Black & Tan Sinskaya Naked Einkorn
(Triticum monococcum); naked seeds!
We are excited to include this naked seeded einkorn in our winter grain trials, yes, you read that right - a naked seeded einkorn! Our original seed stock comes from John Sherck who received it from Swedish seedman Ruurd Walrecht. John states of this einkorn: "It is and will remain one of the reasons Sherck Seeds exists. To aid in the proliferation of rare and useful seed for farmers, homesteaders and gardeners alike."; a sentiment we share wholeheartedly.
This selection was made by Kevin Payne in Taft, California. Early maturing plants are tall, boasting grain heads that reach 5-6.5 inches in length. Naked grains are extremely “free threshing.”
