An old time heirloom cane sorghum from Jamesport, MO. Grown for a sorghum mill by a Mennonite these red hulled, very thick stalks are 4-8' tall.
Produces good yields and lots of grain. Can be cleaned easily by rubbing over a sieve.
Stalks are juiced and boiled to make a very sweet, light-colored syrup. The large seeds are edible as a grain crop and taste a lot like lentils. They also pop well for use as a breakfast cereal.
Plant sorghum about ten days after the proper corn-planting dates in your area. Plant in rows or in hills.
You can judge the proper harvesting time for the juice of the stalks by the condition of the seed heads. When the seeds are no longer milky, but still in the doughy stage, it is time to cut for juicing. When your thumbnail will no longer dent the seed the ideal time for harvesting for syrup has passed. Than, you can use the seed heads as a grain.
