Wheat is another Heritage Wheat. This is a variety of wheat that was developed
from a selection made in 1937 at the Experimental Farm in Indian Head,
Saskatchewan. It was grown in tests in Eastern Canada starting in 1942 and was
recommended for license in 1951 as “wheat for use in Eastern Canada.” Here it
was a consistently high yield showing remarkably good strength and vigour of growth.
According to the old research station records, Acadia and Selkirk were the two
most prominent varieties of bread wheat grown in the Maritimes in the 1950’s.
This was a time when the region was much more self-sufficient in wheat
production. Great for all types of baking. Grown in the Maritimes.
