North or South and Indoors or Out, Sugar Cane is Sweet
Sugar cane is a stunning ornamental. It looks just like dark purple bamboo with a varnished finish and long, slender leaves. Home designers love it for its modern flair and its exotic feel. You can make a privacy hedge, windbreak or accent piece out of Sugar Cane. And best of all, it will yield pounds of sweet, juicy sugar cane.
Store-bought sugars are refined with bleach and other chemicals. But with Sugar Cane, you can make your own homemade sugar that contains antioxidants, flavonoids and a richer flavor. Diabetics can enjoy Sugar Cane as well, since it boasts a relatively low glycemic index of 43.
Plus, our Sugar Cane is perfectly suited to indoor gardening! No matter how far North you live, you can grow your own Sugar Cane easily, near a sunny window.
Even better, your home-grown Sugar Cane is super versatile. Rich Southern syrups, your own distilled rum or molasses, or your own sugar straws for mixed drinks and more. Sweeten your own beverages, naturally, with the coveted Sugar Cane.
And baked goods taste out of this world when you use fresh, unrefined sugar. You can sweeten your coffee or tea by placing a small strip of raw cane in your cup. Some professional chefs use it to skewer fresh shrimp for a unique, tropical-inspired taste. Sugar Cane juice makes the perfect energy or sports drink with natural glucose and electrolytes for long, sustained energy without the crash.
No pruning, no problems. This will be the lowest maintenance plant you own. The only time you will have to touch your plant? When you water and harvest. No hassle - just sweet, abundant Sugar Cane. And abundant is the keyword, since your Sugar Cane will produce delectable canes for 6 to 8 years. Three plants will make a pound of sugar, paying for themselves several times over.
Sugar Cane is limited to certain times every year - and this popular plant is selling out. Order yours today!
