Mennonite Sorghum - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Mennonite Sorghum (out of stock)

I've been experimenting with different varieties of sorghum for a few years now, and for many seasons Mennonite was my favourite. After discovering Ba-Ye-Qi sorghum last year, it's no longer my go-to variety for grain production (Ba-Ye-Qi has it beat for earliness), but it's still a great dual-purpose variety for syrup and grain (if started early).

The plants look a lot like tall stalks of corn, only rather than producing a tassel on top they each bear a head of grain. In addition to the grain (which is gluten-free) the juice from the mature stalks is sweet and can be pressed and boiled into syrup. I enjoy just chewing on the stalks in the garden like sugar cane. 100+ seeds (1.5 grams)

Eezer Perennial Wheat - Annapolis Seeds
Eezer Perennial Wheat (out of stock)

We’re excited to have this special seed to offer. Perennial wheat is still something that’s in the experimental phase, it’s the result of naturally crossing modern annual wheat with it’s wild perennial ancestors, and then breeding and selecting for large seeds and yields while keeping the perennial traits. The plants look “wilder” than annual wheat, with long elegant seed heads.

Best planted in Autumn and overwintered, for harvesting the following summer. Although spring plantings will also work. Each generation throws off a number of annual plants which should be rouged out. You can tell the annuals apart because they head out earlier and have more plump, conventional looking heads. Slightly lower yielding than annual wheat, because the plants have to hold some energy back for the winter, but it’s also just early on in the selection process. Lets grow these seeds far and wide, and select our best plants for future generations! Approx. 100 seeds
