Sorghum - Black Amber Cane

 Sorghum bicolor

HEIRLOOM One of the earliest molasses sorghums known. 6-8′ stalks bear shiny black seeds and make fine brooms. A good intercrop for pole beans and peas.
Ranks with wheat, oats, corn and barley as among the most cultivated grains in the world. It is used as flour, cereal grain, sweetener, livestock feed, and in the making of brooms. Best known in the South for making molasses during an all-night boil where the juice is pressed from the stalks and reduced down in a large pot over a fire until it becomes a rich dark syrup. Nutrients: iron, phosphorus and potassium
