Teff is an annual tufted grass, growing to 1 m in height, with very small grains that may be ground into flour or eaten as a porridge. Teff is grown as a cereal crop primarily in Ethiopia. The grain is ground into flour, fermented and made into Injera, a sourdough-type flat bread.
'Brown/Red' is a hardier and faster maturing variety, taking about 4 months to mature. Historically it has grown better than 'White' at ECHO Florida.
