Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Triticale is a wheat-rye cross! Originally bred in Scotland and Denmark.
Forage yields can be higher than wheat or barley yields. In addition, triticale is more disease resistant in many cases. Many forage wheat fields can have severe stripe rust and barley scald has been a problem in some barley fields in other years. However, triticale in many of these situations be disease free. Triticale works very well in a grazing/haying system. Triticale has also performed well when grown dryland or when irrigation was limited. Perhaps due to its extensive root system and rye background, triticale has good drought tolerance.
