There are over 200 varieties of agave in the world but only one, Agave tequilana weber (Agave azul or blue agave) is authorized for the production of tequila. Many other varieties are used as garden plants or ornamentals. Another variety, Agave americana, whose common names include century plant, maguey (in Mexico), or American aloe, is used in the production of mezcal.
