Eragrostis tef (White Teff) [100 Seeds]


Germination Information: Surface-sow these tiny seeds in pots or cell packs in early to mid spring and keep them in a warm, bright place for sprouting. (The last time I grew teff, I sowed on April 11 under lights on a heat mat, and the seeds sprouted on April 13. Your experience may vary.) Direct-sowing around your last frost date can also work well, but it can be tricky to scatter the seeds evenly because they are so small.

White teff (Eragrostis tef) is pretty enough to grow as an ornamental grass in beds or containers, or in the cutting garden, with gracefully arching sprays of pale seedheads. The plants typically reach about 2 feet tall before starting to bloom in midsummer and continue to look pretty for months. Teff is also valued as a nutritious, gluten-free grain, producing a bounty of tiny but abundant seeds. If you cut off the ripened heads in late summer (I gather a bunch of stems in one hand and cut them off about 2 inches above the ground), you may be able to harvest another crop of seed in mid fall. Full sun. Annual.

Collected in August 2022. At least 100 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
