It has been naturalized in the southern United States and the New World tropics. In its native environment, it is grown in higher areas where rice and corn do not grow well. Job’s tears are also commonly sold as Chinese pearl barley in Asian supermarkets, although C. lacryma-jobi is not closely related to barley (Hordeum vulgare).
