Saccharum (family Poaceae, tribe Andropogoneae) Sugarcane is a tropical grass native to Asia, where sugarcane has been grown in gardens for more than 4,000 years. The product of interbreeding four species of the Saccharum genus, sugarcane is a giant, robust, sugary plant. Methods for manufacturing sugar from sugarcane were developed in India about 400 BC. Christopher Columbus brought the plant to the West Indies in the sixteenth century, and today sugarcane is cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical regions throughout the world. Roughly 75 percent of the world's sugar comes from sugarcane. Sugar cane preforms best in tropical or subtropical climates.
