(Triticum aestivum); Heritage; Spring wheat; Soft to Semi-hard White; Beardless / Awnless; a variety from the Kusa Seed Society Collection

With origins in the White Lamma variety of England, Pacific Bluestem #37 was introduced in Australia as White Lammas during the early years of that country's wheat production. First sown in the US in California in the early 1850's, it was extensively grown, spreading to Washington and Oregon.  It was once considered the best milling and baking wheat in the Pacific Northwest. Our original seed stock came from Kusa.

Pacific Bluestem #37's beardless heads are erect and squared, tapering slightly at the tip. Its white-yellow chaff is smooth, stiff, wide and difficult to break. Kernels are medium sized.
