Banatka Winter Wheat
(Triticum aestivum); Winter wheat; Minimum: 7 grams / 1/4 ounce of seed
My passion for heirloom grains was sparked by how well this winter wheat thrived in our garden.
2017 Late Summer Harvest
|distance between plants||1.5 inches|
|distance between rows||20 inches|
|final plant height||36 inches|
|heads per plant||4|
|seeds per head||44|
|weight per 100 seeds||4.2 grams|
|length of head||83 mm|
|awned / awnless||awned|
|hulled / hulless||hulless|
My unusual spacing was planned to allow peas to be planted between the wheat. A very small percentage was awnless with both white and red heads. I found this grain to be easy to thresh by hand.
