Triticum aestivum. Beautiful black awns stand out against the black and white glumes (kernels) of this six-row wheat. It is a real show stopper in the field and will fill your belly as well. For ornamental use harvest when the kernels have plumped out and the awns are dark black. For food, allow the heads to continue drying down on the plant. The awn colour will weaken and the kernels will redden when it is time to harvest. Bundle into sheaves, thresh and winnow the seed and then take the little beauties into your kitchen to bake wheat berry pilaf or grind your own flour. What a great feeling.
