True Nectar, Canary Island Giant Agave (agave salmiana)

This massive Agave is the premier source for the production of Pulque and Mezcal and has recently received additional attention as a superior source of Agave nectar, a natural, low-glycemic sweetener. A splendid Agave from central and southern Mexico that forms a large rosette of wide, dark green to gray green leaves. Mature plants can get to 3 m (10 ft.) tall. An outstanding and dramatic plant for drier warm temperate regions that will thrive on regular watering and fertilizing. It can take some drought and light freezes.
