The sweet sap of ‘Sugar Drip’ makes this variety ideal for syrup production. Seed donor Wayne Hayes of Kentucky notes that the syrup made from it has truly exceptional flavor. Plants reach 7-9' tall; 75 percent of plants do not produce a tiller, while 25 percent have one tiller. 'Sugar Drip' was offered as early as 1909 by the T.W. Wood and Sons seed company of Richmond, Virginia, which touted its syrup-production qualities. 80 days to flowering.

Direct Seed: 4" Apart

Germination: 4-21 Days

Rows Apart: 36-48"

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.
