1874 Turkey Red Wheat

In 1874, Mennonites from the Ukraine brought Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the Great Plains in South Central Kansas. I grew up just  a few miles from the location where the first grains were planted, and count this variety as part of my heritage. I am now growing this variety for milling and baking in Minnesota.
