(Triticum dicoccum) We’re so excited to be able to offer this “ancient wheat.” Known only from archeological digs until the early 20th century, emmer wheat was found growing in isolated areas of the Middle East, Italy and Russia. The yields are lower than for modern, “improved” wheats, but it’s superior in homestead gardens because of its disease resistance and its ability to yield on poor soils. Most importantly, the structure of this wheat’s gluten is different from that of modern types, so it’s often digestible by people with gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies! Sometimes called “Pharaoh’s Wheat.” This variety is called North Dakota Common.

What are the pros? Grows even in the worst soil.

What are the cons? Hulls

Review:

This is a great variety that will grow in a variety of conditions. I am still searching for an easier way to remove hulls and sift the grain to use. Yield and quality of grain was excellent. I replanted some in the fall as a winter wheat. Plants did well and resisted the early frosts very well. We'll see what happens in the spring.
