Encouraging home gardening and seed saving since 1986

Tritordeum

Tritordeum was created in Spain in the 1970’s by crossing a wheat with Hordeum chilense. The cross was merely done to add fungus disease resistance to wheat, but this crop is now grown on a limited scale in Spain as it has been found to be valuable in its own right. It is a fall seeded crop whose bearded heads look like those of 6-row barley and whose seeds are hulled like common barley.
