Agave : The Tequila plant...

Iv been on the run collecting plants from across the country for my site (GODZILLA BUNGALOW(mudh island.....its named funnily but is a oriental themed bungalow for parties n shoots).So while researching the plants i came across something that i just had 2 share...Agave is a common plant iv used it and seen it almost everywhere its a hardy landscape plant that when used on mounds or groups look stunning.
.Archeologists say the Aztecs cultivated the Blue Agave starting over 9,000 years ago and made a variety of wine or beer from the plant.Contrary to popular misconceptions, tequila is not made from cactus but rather from the agave plant, a member of the lily family.Agave plants are succulents with long spiny leaves. There are more than 400 species of Agave all native to america and mostly to Mexico. They live for many years as a rosette of thick, fleshy leaves, then flower once (often around 30 years old or so) and die. Like a bromeliad , once an agave blooms it will die. But before it does, it will produce several new plants around its base.So when entering one of these forest nurseries i was stunned to see these plants used as a natural fence all around the nursery..(mainly because the plant has a nasty thorn on the end of each leaf...and cattle don't seem to like the plant).

PROPAGATION:Easy to grow, the Blue Agave plant grows best in tropical conditions. Blue Agave wants lots of sun, warmth and little water in good soil. Great enjoyed for a few years in a nice pot then into your landscape for a unique look guaranteed no neighbor of yours will have .one important care tip this plant hates water logging & frost.It will be its bluest in full sun which will also help to keep fungal diseases at bay

How is tequila made:Tequila is made from the distilled sap from the hearts (pinas) of the Blue Agave plant.Plants are harvested after being in the fields for 8 to 12 years. The long spear shaped leaves are cut off leaving the large pineapple-like cores.The pinas are then slow roasted or steamed, and pressed or ground to release the juice.This liquid is then fermented and, at a minimum, double distilled.

Agave nectar is 1.4 to 1.6 times sweeter than sugar. Agave nectar is often substituted for sugar or honey in recipes. Agave is commonly used as a Vegan alternative to honey in cooking. Because it dissolves quickly, it can be used as a sweetener for cold beverages such as iced tea...

  28. I wonder if we could use indian agave plant to make taquila or it's the cactus plant we see around in India?

  29. Read about Desmondji's "100% Agave" spirit distilled from the blue agave grown in chitoor district of Andhra Pradesh. Have always wondered what this spiky plant growing wild all over India is - by side of fields or seen from the window of a train ride! Are all of these agave or some other wild plant.? I used to think these are some sort of wild pineapple
