More information about wheat: Winter wheat is planted in the fall, starting in September and continuing thru October. Winter wheat sprouts and grows in the fall. Once it freezes in the fall, winter wheat becomes dormant until the soil warms up in the spring. Then the wheat grows and matures until harvest in the summer. In fact, without the cold temperatures, winter wheat would just continue to produce leaves and would never produce the head of wheat kernels (the flower of the wheat plant).

Hard wheats are higher in protein and gluten and are usually used for yeast breads. Soft wheats are primarily used for tender pastries, cakes, cookies, flatbreads, crackers and muffins. Soft and hard wheats are often blended to make all-purpose flour, used in a wide variety of baked products. Durum wheat is the hardest wheat and is primarily used for making pasta.

Hard Red Winter Wheat - This wheat is high in protein and strong in gluten. It is used for yeast breads and hard rolls. Hard Red Winter Wheat is grown in many states, including Arizona, Washington, California, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Minnesota, Missouri, and the Plains states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Kansas ranks first among the 50 states in wheat production, primarily producing hard red winter wheat.

Hard White Wheat - Hard White Wheat has been grown in Kansas, California, and Montana. In recent years, much more research has been invested in hard white wheat so look for an increase in the production of this class of wheat.
