    the best sugar cane i have ever had was when i visited the virgin islands. When we landed, the taxi driver sold me a huge stick for like 5$. it took me a long time to eat it, and i looked like some crazy bum but loved every bit of it.

    So where is the cane? Looks like a bunch of long leaves.

    This plant gorws somthing akin to bamboo. the long leaves fall off leaving a think "cane" like trunk. The "sap" is saturated with sugar.

    Peter,

    I have not yet tried cuttings off my plant, it only just threw up a side shoot this year so I might hack the old one back and see if those will root. I can not promise it will work but if it does you are the first on the list.

    Spec,

    I know there are suppliers but I don't know where they are. I actually got mine in trade for CPs a couple years ago. If I am really successful and have spares after Peter you are welcome.

    depends on which type he is specifically looking for. i know that they sugar cane i recieved in st thomas, was a hybrid from the jamacian sugar cane, i was told and have found out. All sugar cane is different. Not so much in looking at it. It seams to be a different sweetness/taste.

    these are the ones i am aware of
