Emmer Wheat

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

(Triticum dicoccum) We’re so excited to be able to offer this “ancient wheat.” Known only from archeological digs until the early 20th century, Emmer wheat was found growing in isolated areas of the Middle East, Italy and Russia. The yields are lower than for modern, “improved” wheats, but it’s superior in homestead gardens because of its disease resistance and its ability to yield in poor soils. Most importantly, the structure of this wheat’s gluten is different from that of modern types, so it’s often digestible by people with gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies! Sometimes called “Pharaoh’s Wheat.”
