Sorghum Approximately 1 Tablespoon

Nerum Boer – Considered a “popping” sorghum foremost, this is a great multipurpose sorghum as its stalks are very sweet (suitable for syrup) and the seed also makes a good meal when ground. Said to originate with the Shilluk people of Malakal in the Upper Nile State of South Sudan. Collected in 1965 by the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture, but due to wars in the area where this sorghum was originally grown, its existence in its home area is threatened. The plants reach a height of ~8 feet and I noticed absolutely no disease issues or lodging – all stalks were strong and stiff, standing up well to the wind. Late maturity, I harvested in late September.
