White Sonoran Wheat BerriesRF004
Grown by Ramona Farms, an Akimel O'odham owned business located on the Gila River Indian Reservation near Sacaton, AZ. White Sonora Wheat is the oldest wheat in the Americas. An ancient heritage wheat brought to the Sonoran desert by Padre Eusebio Kino, a Jesuit Missionary. He introduced this wheat to the Pima (Akimel O'Odham) people around 1685. The famous O'Odham che chemait (tortillas) were first made from this wheat which was the predominant wheat variety in the desert southwest until the 1940's. These wheat berries can be cooked whole or cracked and used as a side dish or added to salads.
