Very well adapted to well drained loam and will mature in any area with a long enough growing season for corn. What a fantastic Sorghum for so many uses. Harvest for syrup. Feed the left over canes/leaves as silage to goats or cows. Save the seed heads for the chickens!
1 Package of 200 Seeds
Approximately 200 seeds per package. One ounce will plant a 50 foot row. Three pounds will plant an acre.
Yields 100 gallons of syrup per acre with record yields exceeding 400 gallons per acre. You can also roughly figure 1 gallon per 100 foot row.
Rox orange is an old time sorghum favorite for syrup. Many an old timer poured this delicious syrup on a hot plate of pancakes or corncakes! My grandfather used to give us pieces of mature cane heart at Christmas so we could chew it like "candy cane". We always thought it was a treat.
Rox Orange sorghum is grown like corn, but prefers well drained sandy loam. Rox Orange will grow to 8 ft. tall and can be cut for silage after 70-80 days, or be used for livestock grain if left to full maturity. The seed yield in addition to syrup can be heavy, yielding up to 500 pounds of seed per acre and higher.
