Chiddam Blanc de Mars, a soft white landrace wheat variety from Ville de Paris in France was chosen originally because the French have such a wonderful reputation for good bread - thinking of Poilane’s whole wheat country loaf. It is often more prolific than Sonora wheat. We have continued to propagate Chiddam Blanc de Mars even though it is relatively short in stature, because we expect that it will yield well in areas further north in California, and where there is a higher rainfall, or on soils with good water retention.
