Tares

Additional Links

TARES (Gr. zizania , Arab. [Note: Arabic.] zuwân ) are certain kinds of darnel growing plentifully in cornfields. The bearded darnel ( Lolium temulentum ) most resembles wheat. The seeds, though often poisonous to human beings on account of parasitic growths in them, are sold as chicken’s food. When harvest approaches and the tares can be distinguished, they are carefully weeded out by hand by women and children (cf. Matthew 13:24-30 ).
