Sugar Cane Sticks

Grower: Kong Thao
Description: The Purple Sugar Cane is botanically known as Saccharum officinarum and is classified as a perennial grass. This Sugar Cane variety is similar in appearance to bamboo, which is 1-2″ thick and has clearly divided segments with a reddish purple outer skin. The Purple Sugar Cane produces sucrose, which can be extracted or simply removed by crushing the stem and has an expected sugary flavor. Being one of the most valuable grass crops, the Sugar Cane produces 70% of the world’s sugar supply.
