n : wheat with hard dark-colored kernels high in gluten and used
for bread and pasta; grown especially in southern Russia,
North Africa, and northern central North America [syn: {durum
wheat}, {hard wheat}, {Triticum durum}, {Triticum
turgidum}, {maccaroni wheat}]


Durum Wheat, mi sembra di capire, sia il Triticum turgidum var. durum

Secondo il ministero dell'agricoltura canadese Hard wheat e' Triticum durum

sono piu' confusa di prima, e mi scuso di non saperti dare una risposta univoca.
