Sumac Sugar/Sweet Cane Sorghum

$ 3.99

(Sorghum bicolor) Among the first varieties of sorghum to be grown in the United States.  Imported in 1857 by Leonard Wray, who had found the variety being grown by natives in Natal, South Africa.  Seed was initially grown in South Carolina and Georgia, later gaining wider distribution throughout the South and Midwest.  By the 1930's it was the most economically important sorghum variety in the United States, being grown at the time for both forage and seed.  Plants grow 5-6' tall producing juicy green stalks that yield a flavorful, amber-colored syrup.  Round, cognac-colored seed can be ground to produce a nutritious flour that is high in antioxidants.  Synonyms: Koombana, Red Top, Clubhead. 120 days to harvest. 100 seeds per packet.

 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".
