Sonora is one of the oldest surviving wheat varieties anywhere in North America. Predating Red Fife and Turkey Red wheat, it is a soft white, round winter wheat with pale red grains.

While earliest records document its existence in the mountain plains of Sonora, Mexico in the early 1700s, the wheat surely predates that era by generations. It was widely planted in California by the early 1800s.

Sonora has a nutty, buttery flavor well suited for richly flavored breads, pastries and piecrusts. richly flavored breads (up to 50%).
