Sweet sorghum was introduced to the American South in the 1850s, where it quickly grew in popularity among farmers looking for local alternatives to the more expensive sugarcane and beet sugar available at the time. Its mellow and unique sweetness as well as its hearty growth in hot and dry climates made it a longtime staple for subsistence farming communities. Large-scale commercial sweetener production hurried the decline of sorghum as a food crop, but a resurgence is underway for this distinctive, traditional bit of the American South.
