Emmer


Emmer is one of the oldest cultivated wheats, along with einkorn and spelt, and therefore shares the trait of being a hulled wheat so it needs an additional process after thrashing to remove the hulls. These wheats are sold for seed with the hulls on as dehulling damages a certain percentage of the wheat kernels and therefore can reduce germination. Emmer is still widely grown and used for making pasta in Italy.

Emmer

Emmer is tall, with long bearded light brown heads that bend over when mature.
