Agave tequilana, Blue Agave

Details

Weber's Blue Agave (Agave tequilana azul) is cultivated in Mexico for the production of Tequila.

Agave plants are succulants with long spiny leaves.There are more than 400 species of Agave all native to North 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. However, by this stage they usually have produced a cluster of younger plants from stolons arising from ther parent plant. Only the rosette that produces the flowering stem dies.

The other Agave plants live on. The beautiful Agave tequilana azul (Weber's Blue Agave) is the specific variety of Agave from which tequila is made, exclusively in the state of Jalisco, Mexico.

The Blue Agave plants are around 8 to 10-inches tall.
