Barley, Lawina Hulless (Organic)

Hordeum vulgare.

Short plants produce 2-rowed heads of tasty, hulless barley that thresh easily yet don’t shatter. Hulless barley is a good bioregionally appropriate substitute for rice, as it produces well, is easy to process, and cooks up into a wholesome, delicious whole grain. Lawina Hulless is our golden barley variety of choice for market. Performs well when spring sown but may also be fall sown. We obtained this variety from the breeder, Karl-Josef Müller, on our first Seed Ambassadors trip to Germany.

Seed produced by Draft Power at Workhorse Workshops, located at Ruby and Amber’s Organic Oasis in Dorena, Oregon.

Geographical Origin

Direct sow in weed-free, well-prepared soil March to May, during a warm dry spell if possible. Barley is usually frost tolerant down to 15 °F. Fertility and irrigation needs are very low if you have decent soil. Harvest for grain when seeds are dry and plants are no longer green.

Seed Saving

Harvest for grain when seeds are dry and plants are no longer green. Dance, rub, or flail seeds from seedheads. Winnow to clean in front of a fan or steady breeze. Isolation distance is unnecessary for this self-pollinating grain. Save seed without worries.

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    Tried it for the first time this year. Put in three rows in a 4′ wide bed by 20′ . Harvested in mid july after it dried down. It took some work to thresh it I might not have let it dry down far enough but still have a good return on the amount of seed used. Now time to make some barley vegetable soup.
