Stevia rebaudiana

A sugar alternative that's fun to grow!

Grow your own natural sweetener! This fascinating plant can be used as an herbal sugar alternative. Stevia is completely sugar free, but has a taste that is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar. The leaves can be harvested and used fresh, or dried and then powdered, or used to create liquid extracts. Stevia is a tropical perennial that is grown as an annual in places where temps drop below 50º F.
