Rouge de Bordeaux Wheat
(Triticum aestivum); Heritage; Hard Red Winter; Awnless; Fall-planted; Minimum 50 seeds
An awnless hard red heritage wheat from France, Rouge de Bordeaux is often mentioned in traditional bread making discussions. This variety does well on our clay soils. We grow Rouge de Bordeux as a fall planted wheat while our fellow seedsman John Sherck has grown it as a spring planted wheat. This line is multi-generational grown on our southeast Michigan homestead.
Important Note: Rouge de Bordeaux is awnless and consistently suffers extensive loss from birds so protection is advised. Please consider the following awned cultivars as alternative bread wheats Viglasska, and Kastická Osinatká; they consistenly impress!
Limited quantity - only 1 pack per person. I will only ship one pack and will refund the additional packs. Why the limit? To allow as many growers as possible to enjoy this cultivar.
