Sugarcane, or sugar cane, is one (Saccharum officinarum) of the several species of tall perennial true grasses of the genus Saccharum, tribe Andropogoneae, native to the warm temperate to tropical regions of South Asia and Melanesia, and used for sugar production. It has stout, jointed, fibrous stalks that are rich in the sugar sucrose, which accumulates in the stalk internodes. The plant is 2 to 6 m (6 ft 7 in to 19 ft 8 in) tall. All sugar cane species interbreed and the major commercial cultivars are complex hybrids. Sugarcane belongs to the grass family Poaceae, an economically important seed plant family that includes maize, wheat, rice, and sorghum, and many forage crops.
Sugar canes are an item and important crafting ingredient.
Sugar cane can be mined instantly with anything.
When the spot a sugar cane is placed in becomes unsuitable, such as when the supporting object is removed, the sugar cane will uproot and will drop as an item. Sugar cane will not immediately uproot when all adjacent water is removed, but will do so when it next receives an object update or varying seconds.
