According to the Wikipedia article "Historia de la gastronomia de 
Espana," from the 7th
C BC Carthaginians cultivated common wheat, barley, germinated spelt and 
"bojal" wheat. "Boj" means boxwood in English but this word "bojal" does 
not seem to appear anywhere in google except in this article. The word 
is not found in the Royal Academy of Spain's dictionary. Any ideas as to 
what the English equivalent could be?
My hunch is that it could be red wheat but we have hard and soft, winter 
and spring???
