Stevia is exceedingly difficult to find and is grown for its naturally sweet leaves. This herb is from Brazil and Paraguay and is used to sweeten drinks and desserts. Stevia is sweeter than sugar, its powder is reported to be 300 times sweeter. This herb is not cold hardy. The chemical companies who make artificial sweeteners hate this plant and have tried to make it illegal. For best results allow 6 to 12 hours of sunlight. Approx. 40 days to maturity.
