99 days. [Heirloom sent to us from R.C. Mauldin of the Southwestern Seed Service Lab in Waco, TX. Reintroduced by SESE 1997.] One of the earliest sweet canes introduced to American agriculture. Not as sweet as other syrup sorghums. As a silage crop it has the hay and wild game quality of ‘Merit.’ A good intercrop with beans and peas. 8-9 ft. stalks, loose heads of shiny black seeds are grown by many folks for their chickens. Pkt (7 g, about 350 seeds).
