I am looking for hulled buckwheat, but all I seem to find around here is the hard black buckwheat. Do they have it at Whole Foods? If not, is there a website I can order it from? Thanks. I love this website!!!!

Are you sure you don't want Unhulled for sprouting? Country Life Natural Foods in Michigan sells unhulled organic for $4.25 for 5lbs. Also hulled for $6.25 for 5lbs. Get a catalog at 800-456-7694 for UPS delivery. Or visit them at www.clnf.org

ok, hulled means the hull is gone, removed. These are pale in color, and are useful in things like pizza crusts, granolas, cookies, etc...
unhulled means the hull is still on it, they are almost black. Those are useful to plant on soil and get "buckwheat lettuce".
It is getting more confusing to get the right stuff, because many people think the terms mean the opposite of what they mean.
I love the stuff, so good luck getting it.

Just ASK to make sure that the ones you are getting are pale green/whitish in color, if you can't SEE what you are buying. That helps in distinguishing between the types. Also make sure you don't get kasha, which is roasted buckwheat for cereal...did that on my first try at buying buckwheat for sprouting. Then, I bought a five gallon bucket of "buckwheat for sprouting" and it was really buckwheat for growing as it still had the black hull on it and you CAN'T eat the black hull. But it did make nice buckwheat lettuce this summer. Finally SAW the pale green/whitish kind and knew I found what I was looking for! Love it!
Hope that helps.
