Description: Konini is a modern purple wheat, bred from a very ancient line. It only grows to around 80cm high so it’s easy to net, and it is a heavy cropper of beautiful seed that requires threshing. Konini threshes out of it’s loose hulls quite easily. Konini makes delicious sprouted wheat cakes, as well as a great rice substitute when eaten whole after long soaking. All grains contain phytic acids and other anti nutrients and were traditionally always either fermented, sprouted or soaked and cooked for a long slow period to make the grains digestible and nutritious for the human digestive system. Please consider doing the same.

Planting Instructions: Plant in Autumn or early Spring depending on your climatic conditions. Easy to grow and thresh. Will need covering for heads as grain ripens. After harvest mature in greenhouse and thresh 2 weeks later.
