History

Zhukovsky's wheat has never been cultivated alone. It was identified in populations of cultivated wheat under the name zanduri in North-West Georgia, as a mixture with both its parent species. It is now probably extinct in cultivation, but its interest is to be the only other 'natural' hexaploid besides Triticum aestivum.
