description for "Grains: Sorghum bicolor 'Black Amber'"

One of the oldest sorghum varieties still on the market is 'Black Amber'. This long time favorite is aptly named for its shiny black seeds. Growing on stalks that can reach up to eight feet tall, this variety is widely used in making delicious, sweet tasting syrup. Maturity in 100 days. Edited by S. Derr
