Is it an herb, grain, vegetable, or ornamental bead? This easy-to-grow plant is all these things and more! With graceful and flowing miniature corn-type bladed leaves, sturdy stalks, delicate inconspicuous drooping flowers, and ornamental pea-like seeds, Job’s Tears adds a stunning green filler to cut flower displays. A grain-bearing plant useful for food, to make necklaces, rosary beads, and even traditionally in folk medicine for arthritis and to remove heat! Once the husk has been removed for cooking, the grains look more like oversized pearl barley. Great in brothy dishes and traditional Asian drinks, Job’s Tears provides a chewy, mildly sweet, and earthy flavor that has caught the eye of discerning cooks. It has lovingly been called by cookbook authors “the next cult gluten-free grain” and an “unusual, versatile, and beneficial little weirdo.”

What are the pros? Very beautiful, grows easil

What are the cons? Not sure if exact variety

Review:

So pretty, I have been harvesting the seeds for beads. They will be great for the Youth who come to our garden. I haven’t eaten them yet, but want to try. Per online info, it appears that there are two varieties, one to eat and one to bead, not sure which this is. - want to learn more. They are growing well in 9a!
