Ba Yi Qi Sorghum
(Sorghum bicolor); Minimum seeds: 7 grams (1/4 oz)
Ba Yi Qi Sorghum (Ba-Yi-Qi) is often described as the earliest grain sorghum available. It is the first to bloom for us. The stalks are not sweet enough for making syrup. This strain puts it's energy into making large seeds. The stems are not as robust our syrup varieties. The grain in China is used to make alcohol.
When the grain heads were ready to cut, the stalks picked up amazing bright red accents.
