Georgian Winter Bread Wheat

This free threshing, hard red winter wheat was sent to me from my farmer friend Kevin Payne in Southern California. The packet was simply labeled “Georgian Winter Bread Wheat”. I suspect that it may be a strain of Tsiteli Doli, although it was a little shorter and matured one week earlier than the Tsiteli Doli. It also exhibited a lot of diversity in grain heads, similar to the Tsiteli Doli, ranging from reddish heads, to blond and a small percentage of blackish heads. It had fairly good yields and showed no signs of disease or lodging.
