(Triticum spelta); aka Dinkel, Farro; winter; hulled; Germany

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. As its name implies, Schwarzer Winter Grannen Spelz is named for its black awns.
