Wheat is a resource in Aven Colony.
A key food ingredient. It is inedible, but can be processed into flour.
Wheat grows rather slowly - on every planet/map type, there is an edible plant with a significantly larger output. However there are 5 edible products that require wheat, making it very useful for improving food variety. Because of that, wheat should not be farmed early on, when the primary reason for farming is avoidance of hunger rather than improvement of morale.
