This Yellow Variety

We got this yellow-stemmed cultivar in San Andres, Anaga. This type of sugarcane is widespread in the Canary Islands and it is also called Caña Blanca and Caña del País. As in most traditional varieties, flavour is also good and the skin is tender.

The Sugar Cane

Sugar Cane is a 3-5 m (9-15 ft) tall tropical grass that produces most of the world sugar. Saccharum officinarum grows in tropical to warm mediterranean climates. Canes can be peeled and eaten at any moment, they are best after blooming. Sugar cane is very fast growing in hot summer weather, water and fertilize abundantly in summer. It is hardy to light frosts. Protect the base if frosts are expected.

Canarius offers a pack of two super-thick cuttings ready to sprout. Cuttings are the best way to reproduce sugar cane, because they root easily and will give a plant exactly like the original mother plant. Plant our cuttings in a sandy, draining soil. Keep moist and warm above 17 C for rooting. The best rooting temperature is 20-30 C.
