At 1.9 grams per 100 seeds harvested, they are very small seeds.  Sorting out the 'plump' individual seeds for planting (and selling) revealed Pima is not satisfied with my climate.  This is reasonable, since it's from the drier Southwest.  I will continue the grow-out in 2018 after this severe culling, as I am looking forward to tortillas.  In the photo, the surviving seeds look promising, if only they were all that way. It may take a few years.

This wheat does not enjoy the Michigan growing conditions.  I will continue to grow and select to create the Great Lakes regional strain.
