Wheat; Durum


Triticum turgidum ssp. durum. Durum wheat is called pasta wheat. The second most cultivated species after common wheat. Comes from domesticated emmer wheat strains formerly grown in Central Europe and the Near East around 7000 BC. Naked, free-threshing with awns (bristles). It is the predominant wheat in the Middle East. Durum in Latin means “hard”.

CULTURE: Prefers full sun. Adapts to a range of soils. Provide well-drained, organic-rich soil for the best results. Somewhat drought-tolerant. Plant in early spring for fall harvest, or late summer if your climate supports winter wheat production.

SUN: Provide full sun.

SOIL: Prefers fertile, well-drained soil, yet tolerates a wide range of textures and pH conditions.

WATER: Water seeds immediately after planting. Do not let seeds dry out after germination has started, usually between 7 and 14 days.

PLANTING: If you are unsure when to plant a particular grain, enquire locally. We are finding that many so-called winter grains grow well when planted in the spring, and many spring grains perform well when planted in the late fall or early winter. Push each grain an inch or so into the soil or cover with mulch or compost to assure dampness for germination.

SEED PRODUCTION: Seeds germinate best if left in hulls. Dehull at home using hardware cloth in a box.

SUGGESTED Individual Portion: 1/4 Cup.
