People's Dictionary of the Bible
Tares. Bearded darnel (Lolium temulentum), a grass sometimes found in our own grain-fields, but very common in Eastern countries. Matthew 13:25. Until the head appears its resemblance to wheat is very close. Travellers describe the process of pulling up this grass and separating it from the genuine grain, and their descriptions perfectly accord with the language of our Saviour in the parable.
