'ASIAN BLACK' is a rare heirloom sugar cane. This very unique dark purple or black variety is a shorter growing variety compared to others. It has large wide broad green leaves and is very sweet with a very soft peel that is easy to chew and juice. It is known as a chewing can, one of the best variety of sugarcane we carry. Aka Vietnamese Black Sugarcane

You want it and we got it! Grow your own sugar and ween yourself off that high fructose corn syrup poison! Sugarcane is a beautiful tall grass that can reach over 8 ft tall. It is hardy to zone 8b and can tolerate wet conditions. Once established you can root new plants from mature can stalks to grow your sugar stash! Great addition to a greywater system (as sugarcane will thrive under wet conditions). This plant will set your perennial food forest apart!

The cane can be peeled and eaten or pressed for juice that can be cooked or dried to give you a non white sugar full of minerals. Get off that white stuff and grow your own! Minimum put size is 6" and plant is well established.
