I'm looking to grow a couple of different grains for interest purposes, and to learn them. Reading up on buckwheat I found this page http://wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-grains-101/buckwheat-photos
which seems to suggest a Green Buckwheat variety (without hull)?

Does anyone have knowledge or experience of growing? Also looking for a source of seed.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Ryan and welcome! I am interested in the answer to your question also...I use buckwheat as a summer cover crop, for bees and as a chop and drop mulch but don't know any different varieties.
