Emmer (White Fall Planted)
(Triticum dicoccum); winter wheat
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. This variety has been selected for its white color.
- 10 grams of seeds in hulls
- 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.
