Ble' dur Arcour was originally collected in Türkiye in 1926 by Mikhailovich Zkukovskii, Soviet botanist and academician of the V. I. Lenin All-Union Academy of Agricultural Sciences. While on a two year expedition (1925-1927) to Asia Minor, Syria, and Mesopotamia, he collected about 10,000 samples of indigenous cultivated plants, including this marvelous einkorn. Zkukovskii is also credited with first describing the wheat species timopheevii.
