This red-seeded sorghum hails from Cibeque, Arizona, in the White Mountains of Northern Arizona on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. Sorghum, originally from Africa, was introduced to North America as a source for grain and animal forage. It quickly found a place in the more arid climates as it proved to be very heat and drought tolerant. It also proved to be an exceptional sugar substitute; its sweet stalks can be chewed raw or made into molasses and syrup. These plants can grow as high as 7 feet tall.
