Whether you’re looking to grow barley for its grain or would like to use its long-whiskered heads for cutting, ‘Black Hulless’ is a great choice. It’s pretty easy to get the dark kernels free of the chaff with hand-cleaning, so it can go from the garden to the kitchen without too much work. The stems reach about 2 feet tall, with two-row heads that ripen from green to black-tinged golden brown with long awns; in either stage, they are are a pretty and unusual addition to fresh or dried arrangements. Full sun. Annual.
Collected in mid July 2022. At least 30 seeds.
