(Hordeum vulgare L. subsp. vulgare); 6-rowed; Hull-less; Awned; Fall-planted
A modern (2007) 6-rowed barley cultivar, Eve was developed by Carl A. Griffey at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute (yes, I know, Virginia is not a Great Lakes Region state, BUT! keep reading!) That it is a broadly adapted winter hull-less cultivar with superior grain quality, strong straw that doesn't lodge and resistance to fusarium head blight makes it a perfect cultivar for a self-sufficient homestead (did I mention it is hull-less!?!)
Eve is an early maturing barley for us and is very productive in defiance of weed pressure (only 30 hours in a day, right?) Despite its awns, Eve is a pleasure to thresh - the resulting bin of hull-less barley grains quite satisfying.
