WTB Sugar Cane cuttings
« on: April 29, 2021, 04:23:02 PM »
Looking to get some sugar cane, ideally either what is considered top tier for eating and/or ornamental purposes.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

Its very tasty, one of my cuttings had a long section between nodes so we ate it haha. The yellow im assuming is more ornamental? we found it to taste a bit bitter

no the yellow is super good and sweet.  it takes 2 years to mature then it makes fallons of extra extra sweet juice and pieces to eat straight.

The older cuttings get super sugary and fat.  Whatever I sent was probably not fully ripe.  You can propogate with any of it but it takes a long time to get extra sugary.
