Hexaploid Wheats

(6n=42 chromosomes). Even though the hexaploids have been around for thousands of years, they are often called “the modern wheats” because most modern varieties in use today are indeed hexaploid. Before industrial agriculture became widespread tens of thousands of distinct hexaploid varieties were being grown around the world. Includes Spelt, Red Fife, White Sonoran and the other famous landrace wheats.
