We received our original cutting as a gift. The stalks have a beautiful yellow and green sweet stalks. It grows very well in cool climates and does not need a lot of heat to sweeten up. The "Lemon-Lime" name is to refer to the bicolor stalks, not flavor (which is just sweet). It is also known as San Diego Yellow.

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.
