Sorghum bicolor - I've been experimenting with different varieties of sorghum for some years now, and for many seasons Mennonite was my favourite. It's no longer my go-to variety for food grain production (both Ba-Ye-Qi and Gaolian Voskovidnyj have it beat for earliness), but it's still a great dual-purpose variety for syrup and grain. The juice from the mature stalks is sweet and can be pressed and boiled into syrup. I enjoy chewing on the stalks in the garden like sugar cane. To ensure they ripen in our climate, seedlings are best started indoors early May and transplanted out early June. 100+ seeds (2 grams)
