(Triticum spelta); aka Dinkel, Farro; Hulled; Landrace; Fall-planted;

Known as dinkel in Germany or farro in Italy, Spelt is an ancient hulled wheat variety originating in the Fertile Crescent over 9,000 years ago. Favored by many for its hearty, nutty flavor, Spelt's higher protein content results in a less glutinous flour compared to other wheats.

A landrace from Austria, Bregenzer Roter Spelz is truly a gorgeous addition to your garden with its tall and stately straw tinted in hues of red and purple.
