Organic Popping Sorghum ‘Allu Jola’

90-100 days to harvest 6-8' tall Oryza sativa

HEIRLOOM If you’ve never tasted popped sorghum, imagine the richest, most nutty popcorn you’ve ever tasted, melting in your mouth even as you crunch…our entire team lost our minds this fall with this delectable revelation! The popped grains are about as large as a grain of classic popcorn, easier to grow and thresh compared to popcorn as well as more abundant and earlier to mature.

Hailed as the most pop-able sorghum, this sorghum strain is beloved in India where it is also ground and cooked whole. A ‘dry’ sorghum not ideal for syrup, we love to trellis pole beans on this sorghum, before we harvest the large, gorgeous seedheads. Even as a dramatic ornamental, this sorghum holds its own! We are grateful for the Experimental Farm Network for sharing this incredible seed with us all.

Organic Popping Sorghum

Direct Seed: Sorghum loves 65+ F soil to germinate. Crows often eat germinating corn and sorghum! Sow or 2 every 12 inches, thinning to 1 per foot, rows 30-36” apart. Harvest in fall when stalk & seedheads (called panicles, isn’t that lovely?!) are gold, drying down and when seeds are becoming hard. If your fingernail pressed into a seed leaves in imprint, your sorghum is still maturing.

Sowing Date: Soil 65 F, mid-May to early June Seed Depth: 3/4 – 1 inch
