Organic Lucille Emmer Wheat (Out of Stock)

Ancient Grain

  • Emmer is an ancient relative of wheat and was one of the grains first domesticated in the fertile crescent of the near east
  • Emmer is planted with the hull on in order to maximize the seedlings natural development
  • Emmer should not be planted on deep rich soil, as it will tend to grow tall and lodge before harvest is possible
  • Drill or broadcast 100 lbs/acre in the top 1 in. of soil early in the spring (when you would plant oats or peas)
