White Sonora Wheat is considered to be the oldest wheat in the Americas. It is an ancient heritage wheat brought to the Sonoran desert by a Jesuit Missionary, Padre Eusebio Kino, and introduced to the Pima people circa 1685. The family farmers of Ramona Farms were the first farmers in the Western Hemisphere to grow wheat and they are still growing it!
This wheat was the predominant wheat variety in the desert of the southwest of the United States until the 1940s. A versatile grain, White Sonora Wheat is excellent for making tortillas and can be cooked with beans, soups, or cooked whole or cracked and used as a side dish or added to salads. While relatively hight in protein content (12.73%), it is low in gluten forming proteins. This characterizes it as a “soft” wheat.
