Sorghum bicolor

White African Sorghum is a dual-purpose grain and syrup sorghum that grows 9-10 ft tall and produces white seeds partially enclosed by a black glume. As a grain, sorghum can be transformed into a flour and made into flatbreads, gluten-free loaves and other baked goodies. It can be cooked as a whole grain and eaten like rice or couscous or milled into grits. As a sweetener, sorghum cane can be pressed into delicious fresh juice, which can then be boiled down into syrup or fermented into alcohol.

White African Sorghum is originally from South Africa and was one of the first sorghum varieties to be grown in the United States in the 1850’s, under the name Enyama Imphee. It was primarily grown for syrup but was largely abandoned with the development of sweeter varieties.
