Tsiteli Doli Wheat

Triticum aestivum var. ferrugineum

 

Tsiteli Doli  is an endemic landrace from the Republic of Georgia. It is a red winter wheat and called Caucasus Rouge in France. It is well adapted to poor and heavy soils. It is drought tolerant and also resistant to disease. It can have some lodging issues when grown under conditions using irrigation. It also has excellent baking qualities.

This is a far more robust strain of Tsiteli Doli than the one I have offered in the past. My original strain came from the USDA. This strain was sent to me from a farmer in Southern California.
