Pearl millet, known scientifically as Pennisetum glaucum, belongs to the Poaceae family and is one of the oldest cultivated grains, with origins tracing back to the Sahel region of Africa. It made its way to India over 4,000 years ago through ancient trade routes and cultural exchanges. Today, pearl millet is a staple crop in arid and semi-arid regions of India, particularly in Rajasthan and Gujarat. We source our pearl millets from Rajasthan and Gujarat.
