Baart is an heirloom spring wheat introduced to the US from Australia in 1900. It was well established in Arizona by 1914; by 1934, 85% of the wheat grown in Arizona was Baart. The semi-hard wheat berries have a relatively high percentage of protein and are known for high test weight and superior milling and bread-baking value. The plants are tall, 40 to 50 inches, and can lodge under irrigation. This heirloom Baart is not rust resistant.
For areas with mild winter climates, Baart is planted and sprouts in the fall and winter, from approximately November to January and harvested in May or June before the onset of the summer rains. Plant in the spring in other areas. From our Seed Bank Collection.
