I am trying out several wheat varieties and so far this one has been the best one for my area. I planted it in the fall and it looks thick and green right now. I live in NE AL. I have up to this point only tried wheat in pots, so this is a new experience and I am enjoying watching it grow. Not sure if the other varieties will catch up and do better later, or not. But I really wish I had grown more of this one!
