Pack of two super-thick cuttings ready to sprout - Striped-stemmed sugar cane with glossy colourful stems with yellow and dark red lines. Very ornamental! Very good flavour and tender skin. Not really "variegated" but still beautifully striped.
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.
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.
