A stunning spring barley from Heilongjiang Sheng, China used to brew various beers. Smaller, 1-3 inch, bulky heads start green and ripen to a shiny black color. 1-3 feet tall. Very productive and after your first harvest you can obtain a second harvest if you leave the stalks! Produces side shoots after first harvest, a trait not seen in modern wheats and barley anylonger. Moderate rust tolerance early on and little to no insect pressure. ~2-3 heads per packet.
