Barley, Lawina Hulless (Organic)

$3.25$35.00

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 tasty, wholesome whole grain. Lawina was our golden barley variety of choice when we produced grain for market. Performs well from spring sowing. We obtained this variety from the breeder, Karl-Josef Müller, on our first Seed Ambassadors trip to Germany.

Seed produced by Myrtle Creek Farm in Myrtle Creek, Oregon.

 

Choose An Option...

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. Dance, rub, or flail seeds from seedheads. Winnow to clean in front of a fan or steady breeze.
