Huron wheat seeds

(Triticum aestivum); Spring wheat; Awned; a variety from The Kusa Seed Society Collection

A mid-season Canadian bread wheat, Huron was developed in Ottawa in 1888. It was commercially grown in the US early in the twentieth century only to fall out of favor as did many other heritage varieties when changes in agriculture demanded varieties better suited to increasingly industrial cultivation. Adaptable, Huron is known to produce well in conditions that are wetter or cooler than ideal.
