These days we know it as common wheat or bread wheat, and although it continues to be the most commonly grown of all wheat crops, durum wheat is far better suited to pasta.In early Australia, wheat was one of the first crops planted by colonists and quickly became our most important grown produce. Those initial harvests would be considered poor by today’s standards, but over time Australian wheat has been developed to endure our unforgiving conditions.“Durum wheat is far better suited to pasta.”For San Remo, the story of durum wheat is very similar. San Remo wanted to produce the best pasta in Australia, but to do that they needed access to the best durum wheat that could be grown. Based in South Australia, San Remo knew that durum wheat crops would perform better if they were best suited to the environment in which they’re grown.
