White Sonora Wheat
White Sonora Wheat is a soft, round-grained winter wheat with pale red grains that grow on beardless heads. The glutinous white flour makes stretchable dough suited to large tortillas, instrumental in the development of Borderlands cuisine, and its wheat berries were used for pinole and posole. Up through the Civil War, this variety provided most West Coast residents with their flour. Today, the White Sonora wheat tradition only persists in a few rural areas of northern Sonora, southern Arizona and central California.
In 2001 I met Monica Spiller and began growing the heirloom wheat named Sonora that she revived. I have grown it every year since on my CCOF certified organic farm In the Capay Valley in N CA. I offer whole berries in 25 lb bags and also superfine and medium grinds on my Austrian Stone mill- milled fresh to order. (more...)
