Triticum dicoccum


Utrecht Blue

This is the most decorative wheat in Jim’s collection. The blue heads with black beards bend over when mature. This variety was still grown around Utrecht (Netherlands) in the early 1900’s. We finally have a definitive classification of it as an emmer with the name Triticum dicoccum var. atratum. Weight of 100 seeds about 5.1grams.
