Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Six row, spring planed, hulless and awned. Strong, erect plants. No lodging noted.
Got planted late. Definitely does not like heat and by heat I mean we are currently having highs 70sF. Nights are still in the 50sF and mornings are foggy. However, this barley has continued to decline as the temperatures rise. Makes sense considering it is from a high altitude with cold weather. Would be interesting to see if it had any frost tolerance.
