Hulless Oats


Hulless oats can be eaten in the same way as rice, but unlike rice (with the exception of wild rice), you can actually grow hulless oats successfully in Canada.

Terra

Terra has large naked kernels and is (or was) grown on a field scale on the prairies.

Baton

Baton is a newer cultivar, bred by Dr. Vern Burrows, Canada’s foremost oat breeder. It is a few days later than Terra, with a bit plumper seeds. It seems to thresh out more completely than Terra.

Torch River

Torch River is a very productive hulless oats that came to us from a Seeds of Diversity Canada member in New Brunswick. There is a Torch River in Saskatchewan (near Nipawin), probably unrelated to the oats. Using our hand threshing methods, it is more difficult to thresh free of hulls than the other hulless oats we offer.

Kleiner Nackthafer

Kleiner Nackthafer, German for “small naked oats,” is a bit shorter and more upright than our other hulless oats producing a lot of tillers per plant. The small seeds thresh very clean and are about one third the size of our other hulless oats. About 100 seeds per gram. We mistakenly listed the packet size in the paper catalogue as 10 grams but because of the much smaller seed we are actually offering it in 5 gram packets.
