From SSE member Michael Adamson, whose family in northern Alabama has grown this variety since the 1920s. The family uses the cane syrup to make molasses and the grain to make pancake flour. Plants grow 8-10' tall, producing juicy, sweet stalks. Starchy seeds are large and plump. Harvest at 100-120 days for grain, earlier for syrup. ±1,500 seeds/oz.

Direct Seed: 4" Apart

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors ½-1" deep after danger of frost has passed. Sorghum can self-pollinate; ‘block’ plantings are not necessary for grain production. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Excessive nitrogen reduces syrup quality.
