Emmer was one of the first crops to be domesticated in the Near East.  It was widely cultivated in the ancient world. On a homestead scale, the hull is difficult to remove.  Highly ornamental, many people grow emmer for decorative use.

Strains of fall planted Emmer:

  • Black Winter Emmer
  • Blue Winter Emmer
  • White Winter Emmer
  • Mix of Black, Blue & White Winter Emmer

Package sizes:

  • 10 grams of seeds in hulls
  • quarter pound of seeds in hulls (113 g)
  • 50 hand selected seeds in hulls

On our homestead, we do not yet have a method of consistently crack the hulls for making flour. 

For reference, 100 seeds with hulls weighs around 3.5 grams.
