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 cross between wheat and cereal rye. Bunker is winter active, awnletted (reduced awn expression) variety used primarily as a green chop -whole plant forage, for hay, or for a very high yielding cover crop. Bunkers awnletted characteristic makes a more palatable hay than a fully awned (bearded) variety. When used and a cover crop, Bunker provides benefits similar to winter active varieties of cereal rye (i.e. AGS104 Rye and Merced Rye); high biomass production, weed suppression, greatly improved water penetration, and excellent cycling of residual nutrients. Bunker would be a considered a standard height cultivar. It can be planted in Fall and Winter in most area of California. Bunker should be planted in the Spring in colder areas, it will have the same growing season as Spring Wheat.
