What are the pros? Glad BK sells this!
What are the cons? Hulls
I haven’t tried growing this yet, but for the buyer concerned about hulling, I think “Grainmaker” (a family company that makes quality hand millers to order) makes a grain hulled. Check them out. Emmer is an amazing old-world wheat.

What are the pros? Interesting
What are the cons? Hulling
I have just ordered the emmer wheat and have been searching for a way to hull it. There is a grain mill called Grainmaker, made in Montana, that has husking stones, but it is too expensive for my small needs. A book called Mini Farming, self suffiency on 1/4 acre, has plans for converting a hand crank Corona mill to hull rice, millet, sesame seed and a few others, so I wonder if this conversion might work for emmer wheat. The best idea I found was from a fellow who has a Toro leaf blower that will also vacuum and shred leaves. He said he pointed the thing upward, set it to vacuum into the bag, and dropped wheat grain into it, and it worked. So, leaf shredder contraptions seem to be the thing to try first! Good luck to all of us!

What are the pros? early maturing
What are the cons? can be lodge
Finishes extremly well in Hungary. Disease resistant, no fusarium head blight noted during harvesting. I always fall plant this emmer variety, it has good frost tolerance. Be careful with nitrogen fertilizer because the plants will lodge.

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