The story goes that an American service
man mysteriously obtained a pocketful of kamut seeds while in Egypt during
WW II. He returned home to his familys farm in the US north central plains
and grew out the seeds until he had enough to sell.
Two years ago, I planted a small plot of it in late September on my familys
land in Maryland, USA. I obtained the seed from a bulk bin at a natural
food store. It grew vigorously with wide blades similar in
appearance to oats but winter killed when the temps dropped down below
about -20 C. I believe that it is grown as a spring wheat in Montana/the
Kamut is delicious cooked as a whole grain like rice. I am planning to
plant some more at my parents place this spring.
