White Sonora Wheat

1 Review | Write a Review
(Triticum aestivum) Here’s another very old wheat, dating to the time before wheat was “improved.” First brought to Arizona and the Southwest by Spanish missionaries in 1691, the “soft” grains are rounded and pale reddish in color. They make a stretchy dough that was instrumental in the development of the flour tortilla. White Sonora was the main variety available in the west, including California, up to the Civil War. This variety has recently been the object of a commercial resurgence in the Southwest, and is another type that is well tolerated by most people who suffer from celiac disease or wheat allergies. Drought tolerant, disease resistant, and highly adaptable.

What are the pros? Perfect for the CA Drought!

What are the cons? Other Varieties


I loved how quick the wheat grew. Drought resistant and little to no maintenance. Maybe I'm just a bit of a freak but I loved running my hands through the wheat, it's so therapeutic. One thing I'm a little confused on though, is there different varieties? Maybe the White Sonora Wheat seeds were accidently mixed with a different variety. I harvested the Sonora Wheat today but I could tell that only a few (maybe 16 wheat plants out of the whole harvest) where completely. They had "whiskers" coming out, the Sonora Wheat didn't. I think this other variety could be emmer or red fife wheat? Hopefully someone could help me out but overall I'm happy with the Sonora Wheat.
