Saccharum officinarum

Red Sugar Cane

Our first canes were harvested from a yard here in central florida, where it had been growing for many years and because of this, we have avoided the GMO sugar cane that is often propagated.

USDA Hardiness Zones:
Deciduous/Evergreen: Evergreen
Plant Type: Perennial
Years to Bear Fruit/Edible Qualities: Each season will provide stalks stemming from the root zone. Stalks are juiced for cane juice.
Full Size: Stalks can reach 5'+
Cold Tolerance: Can tolerate the central florida cold, but it is recommend to cut the stalks up before the frosts come. We recommend storing the stalks for spring planting in a dry cool place.
Light Requirements: Full sun for more stalks
Drought Tolerance/Watering: Great for grey water gardens or near water retention areas. The more water, the faster the growth
