A syrup variety from the Mennonite community in the USA, which is also a great variety to grow as a grain. We have pressed the syrup from our own stalks and boiled it down to a thick syrup – it is very special. 2m square of raised bed produced 1 litre of thick syrup. It grows in a similar fashion to corn with beautiful seed heads. Stems are like sugarcane to suck on fresh, actually they area lot easier to suck and chew than sugar cane, and the large seeds are also edible as a grain crop and they taste a lot like lentils. These seeds also pop well for use as a breakfast cereal. They can be cleaned easily by rubbing over a sieve or pounding or dancing on the seeds. The plants grow tall – over 2m- so it s quite hard to keep the birds of the seed heads however , we tie covers over each individual seed head.
