What are the pros? Really tough
What are the cons? None
Sorghum does very well in my desert poor alkaline soil as Ive been growing the "birdseed" variety here for years. I wanted to try another type and this packet I got was a success. I think every seed I planted out of the packet, still some to go, have been viable so far. I planted them in very poor soil that is subject to neglect and this survived when weeds dried up. If you want a photo of my Mennonite sorghum plants, I can take one for you.
I am about to buy my second seed packet from Rare Seeds, the first one was fine

What are the pros? Very sweet tasting.Excellant !
What are the cons? NONE
Sorghum grew to about 9 feet. Very large seed heads. Planted it at the outside of my chicken pen wire fence. Walk out every morning to let the chickens out and noticed that the 9 foot stalks were moving. Stood back and noticed that Rats and many field mice were in there STRIPPING the seed heads bare. Did eventually catch all the critters and then did have some sorghum left for ME ! . Cut, crushed and boiled the stalks and made a dark flavorful syrup. Worth growing again,and again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, light color,
Have been making this sorghum for several years, just wished it would grow a little shorter, I top and strip it standing up, by hand, sure gives your arms a workout, lol

What are the pros? Lots of grain and nice canes
What are the cons? nothing
Grows tall and produces nicely without much if any watering even in 100 degree weather. Haven't tried juicing it yet but am working on a DIY mill.

What are the pros? pest tolerance
What are the cons? none
It grows quickly and produces a lot of grain. I kept the grain for the next years seed and fed the stalks to my cows who loved them. There were a great deal of grasshoppers that were attracted to the leaves of the plants but the plants seemed to handle them very well and that gave me plenty of fat grasshoppers for fish bait.
