What are the pros? Drought Tolerant, Hardy
What are the cons? None
Disease free and productive. I'm dry gardening. (No additional water or irrigation) This is a grain sorghum and not a dual purpose sorghum. Perfect for the home gardener. The little I tried made great cereal, popping was good, and the flour was lovely white and soft.
Such lovely flower heads, gold and rust red. When seeds were maturing they went from green, to white, to a lovely deep, yet bright shade of rust. Planted direct sown April 24 in unusually cool weather for this time of year. The first flower head appeared on July 9. The first seed head harvested on July 29. I later discovered I could have harvested much earlier. When a little dot forms on the individual seed they can be harvested and hung, or laid out, to further mature and dry. I would say 75 days to maturity is spot on accurate.
They quickly recovered from a severe storm (which is a common occurrence in the Great Plains). I'm impressed by this plants hardiness and productivity in spite of the odds.
