Sugar cane

 Yep, sugar cane. 
Grown in our own yard.
I think I planted it around the beginning of last summer. I got a small stalk from a friend.
It is now taller than us.
A few weeks ago, we decided it was time to see if it was sweet.
We cut one cane and stripped off the leaves.
It was sweet, very fibery, but sweet.
We won't be able to make actual sugar because that process is pretty intense (see here) and requires chemicals. And an ox.
