Tibetan Purple Barley
Hordeum vulgare This 2-row barley variety is a crowd pleaser in the field and in the kitchen. Well adapted to drought and cold temperatures as well as hot summer heat. Plant in early spring for a late summer harvest. Use in pilafs, breads, roasted for tea, and other creative culinary delights. High in antioxidants. 20g/packet
While considered a hulless barley, this 2-row variety is tightly hulled and requires special attention (and patience!) for dehulling. The tight hulls, along with the unique purple tone, are of interest to brewers and maltsters.
