Brought to Kansas by Russian immigrants in late 19th century, this very hardy wheat variety with Anatolian ancestral lineage is adapted to harsh winter conditions. Our crop here in West Virginia did amazingly well through winter with no sign of disease at harvest time. Long seed heads are usually longer than 3″ and slender, and the plants have medium height. Prolific plants produced in mid-season, earlier than other wheat varieties in our field. This is an excellent bread wheat. Originally from Turkey.
Our current stock seed was grown on our seed farm in Reedsville, WV.
Packet has 5 gr of wheat seeds

Slow to grow.
We are trying to over winter it.

NEUTRAL. Didn’t grow this variety last year in my Peace and Unity Revival Garden at Reed’s Organic Farm in NJ but intend to this year.
