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

Lacey Barley Seed
Hordeum vulgare Lacey Barley Seed
1 oz Package which covers about 30' square feet.
"‘Lacey’ a six-rowed spring barley (Hordeum vulgareL.) (Reg. no. CV-290, PI 613603), was developed by the MinnesotaAgricultural Experiment Station and released in February 2000.It was developed in a program to obtain low soluble proteinin a Midwest malting barley.
Lacey's malting quality traits, determined in collaborationwith the USDA Cereal Crops Research Unit at Madison, WI, andindustry testing in cooperation with the American Malting BarleyAssociation, appear to be similar to Robust, the industry six-rowedquality standard. The following quality comparisons are basedon data from 13 separate evaluations made from 1996 to 1999.For the malting quality trait of most interest, soluble protein,the values were 5.6, 5.6, and 6.7%, respectively, for Lacey,Robust, and Stander. Diastatic power is similar to Robust, butLacey is 18% higher in alpha-amylase and yields 0.5% more maltextract. Lacey is currently being evaluated for both maltingand brewing quality in industry tests coordinated by the AmericanMalting Barley Association.
Lacey was 16% higher yielding than Robust and 3% higher thanStander in Minnesota (1996–1999). In Midwestern regionaltrials (1998–1999), Lacey was 12 and 4% higher yieldingthan Robust and Stander, respectively. Percentage plump kernelsof Lacey is similar to Robust and Stander. In seven Minnesotatrials where lodging occurred, the respective lodging percentageswere 33% for Lacey and 42% for Robust. It is not as resistantto lodging as Stander."
