I just had a bunch for snack over the weekend, and about 3 cups of sugar cane juice. One of my favorite juice. I'm gonna be planting some soon. Thanks for the great links in this thread.

I have been looking for a good stateside source for a while now for cane (short of finding a plantation in the south and "borrowing" a cane but that wouldn't be the ethical nor condoned way to go.
And for you Bob! The sell chunks of cane and unprocessed cane sugar online and in most grocery stores that you can use to make rum........

Is there anything left of the root system or even a small shoot? It can be replanted in a different spot.

Check out Stokes tropicals. They are in Louisiana as well and they may have starts. They've been
in business a long time and if they don't have purple can I'm pretty sure that they will be able to
get it for you.

It should recover. If you are going to have frost again, cover it overnight. I wish I could send you some culms as I have loads of it as windrow around my property but the USDA will not permit shipments from here to the 'states'!

Aloha and good luck!

I think in the spring, I'm going to get some of this var. of Saccharum:
Shaman Australis Botanicals

Violaceum looks very beautiful, but one thing I've read about it is that it's not quite as hardy as other officinarums, so I might even have to overwinter it in a GH. :/
Maybe its' worth it, if it looks like that.

Curious if anyone has grown it and if it's as sweet as other var's?

Hey!

I'm in the sugar business as well!
Last week on Monday I received two cuttings of sugarcane from the Canary Islands. I got it from Canarius in Tenerife.
I put it in water on a heat mat at temps around 30° C and just after about 5 - 6 days roots started to show. I will put it in soil now and let sit another week or so on the heat mat. Then it'll go to the green house at the weekend after temps have hopefully risen to spring weather!
I got a purple cane with yellow stripes and yellow cane.
