organic hard red wheatOrganic Pacific Bluestem Wheat

Triticum aestivum

Pacific Bluestem is very well adapted to California (particularly the Sacramento Valley) and the Pacific Northwest region, where it was the favored spring wheat variety for many years. The variety was introduced from Australia in the 1880's, where it was equally popular, and known as White Lamma. Pacific Bluestem was generally considered the best variety for milling and baking, and its popularity only declined with the introduction of higher yielding varieties, such as Federation and Baart.

The grain heads are erect and almost square, with awnless spikelets. It is not clear how "Bluestem" became part of the name, as no part of the plant is blue.
