Heritage Spring Wheat White Sonoran
Ever wonder why border cuisine features flour tortillas? The answer is White Sonoran Wheat! Because of this drought-tolerant wheat, the Southwest and California were once major wheat producers, even shipping wheat to the midwest! Renowned for its wonderful flavor for tortillas, biscuits, waffles, cookies, pilaf, and other soft-wheat specialties, White Sonoran also makes a delicious and special bread wheat. Baker Josey White has published special recipes for it. An endangered variety that has been rediscovered and preserved--"Eat it to Save it," as they say. Excellent yields of beautiful golden wheat berries.Awnless seedheads are easier to handle and to thresh than stickery awned types. (awns are the "whiskers" that stick out the top of some grain seeds.) Our seed was grown by Shone Farm at Santa Rosa Junior College.
