The first form of wheat to be cultivated over 10,000 years ago. Einkorn has much higher protein than modern wheat, but is much lower yielding. The name einkorn is German for ‘single grain,’ since it has only one grain per hull. Similar to emmer, einkorn is also spring sown and can be easier to digest for those with gluten sensitivities. Though this grain is easy to grow, nutritious, and delicious, it is very difficult to thresh the grain from the hull.
