(Sorghum bicolor)  Popular sorghum variety developed in 1970 for use in syrup production.  Tall (10-12') plants produce dense stalks with chalky white centers and high sugar content.  To make syrup, stalks are fed through a press, releasing a sugary juice which is then cooked down into a sweet syrup .  Sorghum Syrup has a sweet, molasses-like flavor and is traditionally served on hot biscuits, pancakes, and grits.  A good, homegrown alternative to cane sugar for those looking to maximize self-sufficiency.  "Dale" is leaf anthracnose and stalk rot resistant.  90-100 days to harvest.  Approx. 100 seeds/pkt.

CULTURE:  After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 4" apart, 1/2" deep in rows 30" apart. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 7-10  days.  Once seedlings are established, thin to one plant every 8".
