Mexicano

Maguey Mexicano (agave Rhodacantha) is also known as Dobadaan in some regions, which is its local name in Zapotec. Though exact numbers are unknown, some speculate that there are seven or more sub-varieties of Mexicano that each produce different characteristics in mezcal. Some of those include Mexicano Penca Larga, Mexicano Penca Corta and Mexicano Liso, Chontal and Amarillo Grande. Many of these sub-varietals are very different looking plants.
