Seeds

Very quick maturing, considered the choicest in flavor if you can hull it.

High alkaline content counteracts acids and makes it easily digested.

Grows 1-4' high and produces a profusion of small, round seeds.

Not easy to hull, but try an old-fashioned laundry wringer.

BOTANICAL NAME : Panicum miliaceum

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: 

Plant after last frost 7": apart in well-worked soil with good nutrients. Soil must be warm for seed to sprout. Keep watered-not as much as corn but a steady small amount. It goes dormant in drought & continues growth with water, the best growth is continuous. Cut seedheads few days before ripening & sun dry to harvest before the birds get the seed.

Attracts birds!
on 01/28/12 by Lani F in WA

 Very vigorous plants with a profusion of seed heads. The wild birds just loved this millet. I couldnt save any seed due to the birds that flocked to our garden for this seed. The birds also helped in keeping the insect population down in our garden. Planting this millet was a win-win situation. We will definitely plant this again!
