Organic Popping Sorghum ‘Allu Jola’
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.
