Iowa Sweet is a very sweet sugar cane type, about 9 ft. tall with juicy stalks. Sorghum is a genus of grasses with about 30 species, one of which is raised for grain and many of which are used as fodder plants, either cultivated or as part of pasture. The plants are cultivated in warm climates worldwide. They are native to the tropics and subtropics of the Old World and one species is endemic to Mexico; a number have been introduced into other parts of the world. It can be used as a grain for gluten free cooking, used as a cover crop or animal feed. Grain sorghum can be used like flour corn. It is especially good for making pancake flour. It can also be harvested for its syrup. Harvest in about 100 days.

Tarahumaran Popping Sorghum is unusual. The
dried seeds can be popped like popcorn! Small, white seeds with nutty
flavor. As with popcorn, the seeds need to dry a good while after
harvest before they’ll pop well. Unlike popcorn, unpopped kernels in the
pan are tender enough to eat. 10-12 ft. tall plants. Ready to harvest
in about 100 days.
