Description

Native to Paraguay. A remarkable sugar substitute, Stevia’s flavor is stable when cooked. You can use it in jams, canned fruits, cakes and cookies. Your own home grown will taste much better than store bought. Stevia is fast growing. It thrives in full sun and well drained soil. Pinch off the flowers as you would with basil. If Stevia is allowed to flower, they droop and become dormant. Some studies have shown that it contains substances that inhibit tooth decay, increase mental alertness, decrease fatigue, improve digestion, regulates blood pressure, and is safe for diabetics. However it has not been approved by the FDA. Excellent sugar substitute for diabetics. My child loves to nibble the leaves. Stevia is a tender perennial. Hardy to zones 9-11.
