Mauri Black wheat seeds

(Triticum aestivum); Spring wheat;  Minimum: 50 seeds

Historically when this wheat was grown in England during the 16th thru 18th centuries, it was called Cone or Rivet.   Perhaps the elongated shape reminded people of old fashion iron rivets?   We plant as a Spring Wheat and is one of the last to be harvested.  Worth trying as a Fall planted wheat  to test winter survivability. Plants have had some issues with lodging.  Like White Sonoma, this line has taken several years of selection to get some adaption to our humidity.
