Utrecht Blue Spring Wheat

Utrecht Blue Spring Wheat OG

Triticum durum Open-pollinated. This may be the world’s most beautiful wheat. It hardly matters that Utrecht Blue is hard to thresh because it is too beautiful to eat and is used instead for wheat weaving and flower arrangements. Features four rows with blue-grey husks and long black awns. Utrecht is a spring wheat; sow it in April for harvest in September. ~19 seeds/g.

Additional Information

Grains

The selections here are rare heirloom varieties especially designed for small- or homestead-scale production. Most of them are decorative in both form and color, making great accents to bouquets and wreaths, but the revived interest in food security and sovereignty is what inspires us to list more edible and heirloom grains every year. In the early 1800s Maine was the breadbasket of the U.S. Wheat and rice do not demand huge space and can be threshed with a little ingenuity. With good fertility, proper spacing and reasonable diligence, it is quite possible to harvest 10 lb of heirloom wheat from 100 plants in a 10x10' plot. A 100' row of rice can yield 6–10 lb.

Larger-scale growers and farmers, those seeking larger quantities of more mainstream varieties, or those looking for cover crops should check out the Organic Growers Supply list of Farm Seed.
