Foxtail Millet


Foxtail Millet

Setaria italica
Annual. Its graceful 3–6" golden seedheads bobbing on an August breeze attract attention even before harvest. After harvest, Foxtail Millet makes a striking counterpoint in floral displays. Customers ask for this specific strain because its heads, covered with golden-russet hairs, are softer and look less seedy than other types. Formerly S. macrochaeta. Plant in June, harvest mid to late August. About 450 seeds/g.
