Tunisian Sorghum

Excellent grain-type sorghum, originally collected in a market in Tunis, Morocco. Smallish, brown to almost olive-colored grains are ground for use as porridge in their native land. Slender stalks and narrow leaves might be an adaptation to their native land. Compact seed heads occasionally cause lodging, so plant a bit deep. Needs really warm temperatures to thrive; recommended for dry-summer areas.

What are the pros? Low maintenance.

What are the cons? Hard to thresh.

Review:

Grows reasonably well in the hot and humid South, but definitely a late crop. I'll agree with the other review that this is a millet, not a sorghum. The cattail-like seed head is VERY hard to thresh. Shaking the seed heads in a paint can with some rocks seems to be the best way, but long, vigorous shaking is required to dislodge all the seeds. The difficulty in threshing may be a plus when it comes to birds, as it is more work for them than regular sorghums, and they leave it alone. I haven't made any flour with it, but the whole grain is tasty steamed or boiled. It does have a rather hard, chewy hull, so it always turns out al dente. I imagine that the hard hull would make for pest resistance and long storage time, but I don't have any hard data on that.

What are the pros? Little to no water

What are the cons? Needs very warm soil to sprout

Review:

This appears to be a type of pearl millet and not sorghum. It needs very warm soil to sprout and in my area that means almost none survived. It doesn't rain here when its warm so its not that great here unless you plan to water the seedlings all the time. I do not plan on doing that. I did grow real sorghum and it does great here it even came back on its own.
