Khorasan Wheat
Triticum turanicum
Uses: Culinary Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring/Anytime Ease of Germination: Easy
An ancient wheat variety from the Khorasan, an area that stretches across parts of Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The grain is twice the size of modern wheat and is much prized for its sweet, nut-buttery taste and smooth texture. It is believed to possess important nutritional and health traits lost in modern wheat after years of modification by breeding. It is used mainly for bread but it is also found in breakfast cereals, cookies, pancake mixes, pastas, and beer. It grows best in dry fertile areas such as southern Alberta and Saskatchewan and the northern Plains states. But even where it doesn’t grow well there is rising interest in growing it at home for wheatgrass juicing. Fresh wheatgrass juice replenishes the body starved by years of poor diet and boosts the body’s ability to fight diseases such as cancer.
