topshotta-your cane looks like CP72-1210.Its a Cana Point variety that was grown here in Fl. commercially in the 70's and 80's.Its a good chewing variety but does not come back from stubble well.

Yug-Thanks for sharing!

I know you are just waiting for the variegated one to get taller, it is doing well. Just a little longer. I hate to wait, too.

Ko Halai'i - variegated Hawaiian sugarcane, about 7 ft high


(updated photo) Ko Halai'i - it's big enough to see the canes now - they are striped too!


Here's the cane!


better shot of the leaves

heres a large barrel cane of "asian black" sugar cane I just harvested.
This makes a sweet juice with a darker tint and has a mild root beer flavor!
