Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite! It can be used as bread flour in any recipe. Learn more about it in this video.

A favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers, like Tartine, Yecora Rojo was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico. It was first received in California in 1970.

    Keep those Yecora Rojo wheat fields producing!

    As long as this full flavored, high protein wheat is available at BSM, it will be in my order cart. I love the sweet malty, complex flavors developed after a long, cool fermentation and warm proof. Whether I'm baking at 100% whole wheat or basing the loaf with a medium protein white flour, this delightful grain never fails to perform.

    Rojo wheat berries

    I've used the ground berries to enrich my starter as you suggested with great results. I've also used it to make no knead sourdough loaves which were very tasty. I'm satisfied.

    Very tasty and my favorite right under spelt. The berries are clean and make a wonderful loaf of bread.

    Great for Bread Making

    I have loved blending Yecora Rojo wheat berries with Rouge De Bordeaux berries to make whole wheat sandwich bread. Good rise and great flavor.
