We’re excited to have this special seed to offer. Perennial wheat is still something that’s in the experimental phase, it’s the result of naturally crossing modern annual wheat with it’s wild perennial ancestors, and then breeding and selecting for large seeds and yields while keeping the perennial traits. The plants look “wilder” than annual wheat, with long elegant seed heads.
Best planted in Autumn and overwintered, for harvesting the following summer. Although spring plantings will also work. Each generation throws off a number of annual plants which should be rouged out. You can tell the annuals apart because they head out earlier and have more plump, conventional looking heads. Slightly lower yielding than annual wheat, because the plants have to hold some energy back for the winter, but it’s also just early on in the selection process. Lets grow these seeds far and wide, and select our best plants for future generations! Approx. 100 seeds
