A flour wheat popular in pre-industrial colonial India, the small distinctive kernels of this variety are indeed spherical. Globe Wheat Strain 1506 is prolific through vigorous tillering, bearing beautiful awned heads held aloft on numerous erect, sturdy stems. Fast germination and emergence of the seeds benefit the plants that grow to 24 inches and do not mind crowding.
