Domesticated Einkorn Grain Seeds. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth. Triticum monococcum. Non-GMO, Heirloom. Widely agreed to be the oldest known wheat, Einkorn is thought to be the first grain ever to feed civilization, dating back as far as 8650 BCE.
Einkorn wheat grows very similar to other grains seeded in fall for overwintering but has a lower yield than modern wheat. Although it can tolerate poorer soils. "Einkorn" is German meaning "single grain". It is also known as "littlespelt". Trictum monococcum is considered the earliest domesticated wheat, stemming from the wild variety Trictum boeoticum. The main difference between the two is how they disperse their seeds. The head of the wild variety of einkorn burst as a way to spread the seeds while the modern einkorn seed heads stay intact. It is assumed that the domestication of this early grain came about due to the conscious or unconscious preference over the seed heads that didn't burst when falling to the ground, as it was easier for early human scavengers to collect and therefore plant.
Einkorn flour has become a popular substitute for traditional wheat flour, with significantly more protein content and less starch. Try Einkorn grain milled or in raw granola. Like other grain wheats, Einkorn wheat is popularly broadcasted directly in the fall to overwinter and ready to harvest the following summer.
For traditional garden harvests, plant 2-3 seeds 1/2 inch deep and 6-8 inch apart in fertile, loamy, well-drained soil in full sun. Seeds germinate in 5-10 days, with no thinning required. Harvest the heads of seeds when dried, hard, and heavy at the end of summer.
