Red fife was the first heritage wheat nominated into the Slow Foods Ark of Taste, and it's no wonder why-- this fantastic heirloom boasts superior flavor and a fascinating history. The exact origins of red fife are unknown. It is believed to have been grown by Mennonite farmers in Poland and brought to North America in the early 1800s. Although the origins are obscure, red fife rose to become the favorite wheat of the baking and milling industry during the late 1800s. A landrace variety, red fife has a broad genetic diversity making it widely adaptable to many different growing conditions in North America. Ever adaptable and delicious, red fife can be grown as both a winter or spring wheat. This is a superb bread flour with a nutty flavor and honey overtones. An excellent choice for a gardener's first wheat crop!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Hard to thresh

Review:

Planted in mid September in zone 9a. Grew to maturity in the spring and harvested in mid June. I wanted to grow my own wheat for the first time to make "real" homemade bread and wow I was not disappointed! Very easy to grow, but threshing was a process. However, this being my first time I'm sure it's a process no matter the wheat. Was able to make my own bread from this and the flavor was amazing! Like nothing I've ever had before. I highly recommend.
