Wheat Berries (and some close relatives)

Clockwise from Top:

Rye (Cecale cereale)-greener than the wheats

Barley (Hordeum vulgare)--partly pearled berries are pale

Kamut (Triticum turgidum)--unusually long, thin, otherwise more resembling durum

Durum wheat (Triticum turgidum diococcum)--longer, thinner, more translucent and golden than T. aestivum

Hard white wheat (Triticum aestivum)--compact, light colored, more translucent than soft white

Soft white wheat (Triticum aestivum)--plump pale kernels

Oats (Avena sativa)--pale, narrow, softer kernels

Spelt (Triticum aestivum spelta)--redder, plump, often has hulls still attached

 

Not pictured: hard red and soft red wheats, which look like hard red and white wheats except they're the same color as the spelt here.
