Black Winter Emmer is a magnificent and scarce heirloom wheat (Urkorn) that can be traced back to 3000 BC. It will impress the most modern of cereal breeders with its totally erect leaf architecture. Its stems are stiff and lodging-resistant. It thrives in drought or heavy rain. This is a strikingly beautiful ancient grain with dark purple to black husks and long awns. Highly ornamental, tall and perfect for unique dried flower arrangements. Very limited amounts of seeds available, however, a single seed, successfully grown and harvested, typically produces several hundred of its kind.
