90 Days. The attractive golden-colored flower heads produce up to 1 pound of white seed per plant, making this a very heavy producer of seed. These seeds are high in protein, and they can be cooked in a number of ways: popped like popcorn, stewed into porridge, and more. Young leaves are also tasty as cooked greens. Plants grow to about 6 feet and are easy to grow.
