Description

CULTURE: More adaptable to diverse climates than Emmer. Spelt is not free threshing. Valued for it’s nutty flavor it is high in vitamins and fiber, and moderately high in gluten.

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.
