The grains

Did you know...

The variety Vendetta is raw material for the production of sicily's D.O.P. bread "Pagnotta del Dittaino". It's the only variety with the "stay green" effect: the last leaf stays green until a few days before harvesting, feeding the ear and preserving the seeds from strictness.
