Description Fine Print
 
Who wants some mezcal? Agave angustifolia is the main species, known as espadin, used to make mezcal, the sister liquor of tequila, especially in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, the home of mezcal. It resembles the tequila agave, A. tequilana, with long, sword-like leaves in shades of silver-blue to powder blue. It is a large-growing century plant so you'll need some space to grow it though, in a pot in Canada, it won't grow as large as pictured here near Puerto Escondido.
