Acidosasa is a genus of East Asian bamboo in the grass family.[4][5][6]

Acidosasa is found primarily in Southern China, with 1 species in Vietnam. Its name is formed from Latin acidum ("sour") and Sasa (another bamboo genus), referring to its edible shoots. Young shoots of the plants are preserved by the local population.[7]
