Sirvinta Winter Wheat - Organic


Sirvinta Winter Wheat - Organic

Triticum aestivum
Most wheat varieties offered to gardeners and small farmers are bred for and adapted to the prairie-type soils of the Upper Midwest. They are generally not as well-suited to the moister forest-based soils of the Northeast. Sirvinta is an awnless hard red winter type collected in Estonia (named after a river in Lithuania) where soils and climate are more like New England’s. Originally brought to Maine in 1998 by Raivo Vihman who passed it along to Will Bonsall, Sirvinta has steadily gained a following with those who promote restoration of Maine’s historical status as a grain producer. Maine bakers have found this variety to have superb qualities for bread. 21 seeds/g. NEW!
