French term or phrase: blé rustique
I am trying to translate the term "blé rustique" and was wondering if it might refer to "hardy or rustic wheat". I have tried various websites and dictionaries to no avail and have only managed to find the following French sentence containing this term:

"L'épeautre (spelt)est un type de blé rustique"

Thanks for any suggestions
Helen
English translation:hardy wheat
Explanation:
Definitely. "Spelt is a type of hardy wheat," as indeed it is. (Incidentally, the opposite is "non-hardy wheat.") See also the web site below. -- Hope this helps! -- HC

natural wheat


Explanation:
in the sense of untreated, unbleached, hence more "rustic"
I did a quick check on Internet on the sites that sell spelt and natural wheat is how they would describe. Also there is a cereal that I like with spelt in it which is called "ancient grains".
