Summer annual which can be used as a green manure crop. An early maturing wheat suitable for almost any type soil. Seeds remain on stalk after ripening, providing food over extended period of time.

Super fast and secure shipping! Seeds look great. I haven't planted them yet but I'm sure we'll get a good yield. Would purchase again.
