This Striped Variety

This showy cultivar is a fabulous variety. Stems are glossy and striped in yellow and dark red. A well-kept plant will look like ornamental bamboos. The flavour is also very good and the skin is tender. This type of "Cuban" sugarcane can be found in the Canary Islands with the name of Caña Listada.

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 super thick 90 cm ready-to-sprout cutting.
Cuttings are the best way to reproduce sugar cane, because they root easily and will give a plant exactly like the original mother plant. Let's plant our cuttings in a sandy and draining soil. Keep them moist and warm above 17 C to take root. The best rooting temperature is 20-30 C.
