Dutch's Tuesday Photo Challenge

Tuesday Photo Challenge GROWTH

December 2018 - La Noria Mexico

In 2016 we were lucky to visit the town of Tequila, Mexico.

In December we paid a visit to Los Osuna, a tequila distillery near Mazatlan.

Blue agave plants grow into large succulents, with spiky fleshy leaves, that can reach over 2 metres (7 ft) in height. Blue agaves sprout a stalk (quiote) when about five years old that can grow an additional 5 metres (16 ft); they are topped with yellow flowers. The stalk is cut off from commercial plants so the plant will put more energy into the heart.
