Another of A.N. Jones' releases, Silversheaf was first offered by New York Seedsman Peter Henderson & Co. in his Autumn 1903 catalog. Lax fusiform spikes are awned, held aloft on strong straw, and thresh easily of their plump grains. Mr. Henderson promised of Silversheaf it will be "the leading fancy milling wheat." A facultative cultivar, this is a fall-planted line. Red Wave and Jones Fife are two other cultivars released by A.N. Jones.
