Default Re: Anyone growing heirloom Sugar Cane

Hello there.
I grow several varieties of sugar cane.
My wife's grandfather is a rancher/farmer. He's family has been growing cane and making
Syrup here in central Florida since before the civil war. I have a couple of ones that have been
With his family for at least 60 years.
A beautiful red stalked one and a purple. I also Have a black stalked variety that is fairly rare
And old.
The red and black are chewing canes, they are thinner stalked, and the purple is a pressing/
Juicing cane. It can get as thick as your arm. You can interchange them of course, those are just distinctions.
Come visit my corner spot; read some interesting post, buy rare edible plants & animals
and maybe learn something!
