Sugarcane is considered a grass. Native to warm temperate to tropical regions of Asia, they have stout, jointed, fibrous stalks that are rich in sugar, and measure two to six meters (six to nineteen feet) tall.
Yesterday, we finally tried the sugarcane planted in the backyard. The taste reminded me of that when I had my first bite several years ago. But the sugarcane then tastes a lot sweeter, I guess it also depends on where it is being cultivated.
