Clover’s Red


Reference #1

The Wheat Plant: Its Origin, Culture, Growth, Development, Composition, Varieties, Diseases, Etc., Etc: by John Hancock Klippart, 1860 LINK
"One of the best of the red wheats which has not attained much attention is Clover’s variety. It was selected and propagated by Mr John Clover, Kirkling, Cambridgeshire. With a bag of this variety Lawson gained the Highland Society’s premium for the best red wheat at Berwick on Tweed in 1841."

"I have long entertained, that the brown Lammas wheats, such as the Burwell and the Clover, are best suited to loamy soils."
