Descripción

‘Coral’ sorghum, originally sourced from Experimental Farm Network, is a showy variety that is entering its third year of adaptation in Western North Carolina. Reliable for both grain and syrup production, this variety makes an excellent choice for growers interested in growing sorghum for a multitude of applications. It is exceptionally tolerant and self-sufficient, thriving under minimal intervention. With large, gorgeous deep red seed heads and fairly consistent 6-8ft. stalks, ‘Coral’ is a captivating variety with a place in any cultivation setting from the home garden to the market farm.

As a passionate sorghum grower, Shelby trialed 29 varieties of sorghum in 2023 in collaboration with The Utopian Seed Project, and after all that, Coral was still her favorite!!

The Appalachian Seed Growers Collective

Things that are important to us:

  • Regionally Adapted – our seeds have been grown and saved in place for at least three years by farmers in the region.
  • Regionally Important – as a regional seed collective we are open to growing and stewarding seeds that have regional historic or cultural significance.
  • Seed Grower Community – we want to create community and opportunities for people to become seed growers in Southern Appalachia, including new farmers.
  • Seed Grower Economics – as a collective we are advocating for better seed contract prices and terms for our collective and sharing the economic risks of growing seeds.
  • Valuing Land and Labor – our internal economics pays growers for their time and land use in growing seeds, not for the quantity of seeds they produce. This eliminates inherent risks in growing seeds and varietal variations in yield, but also allows growers to select for quality over quantity.

SEED SALES WILL RUN UNTIL MARCH 15TH OR UNTIL WE RUN OUT OF STOCK. ALL ORDERS WILL BE HAND-PACKED BY OUR COLLECTIVE THE THIRD WEEK OF MARCH AND SHIPPED BY THE LAST WEEK OF MARCH. Your seed purchasing directly supports the work of the collective and is very much appreciated in these early stages!
