Sweetleaf (Stevia Rebaudiana for pots) 10 seeds (#1826)

Approximately 10 seeds in 0,008g packet.
While Europeans and North Americans focused their needs for sweetness in honey and sugarcane, native peoples in South America were adding stevia leaves to the beverage mate for centuries. Also called sweet-herb-of-Paraguay, sweetleaf and candyleaf, stevia's foliage is filled with glycosides that lack calories and are up to 30 times sweeter than cane sugar. This frost-tender evergreen subshrub is native from the American Southwest to Paraguay. However, it is grown in gardens as a tender herbaceous perennial that is killed by severe winter cold.
Stevia leaves are medium to dark green and are long and tongue-like. The leaf margins are mildly jagged or scalloped. In mid- to late summer, the leaf-lined stems elongate to produce airy clusters of tiny white blossoms, each with five petal lobes. Insects are pollinators and lead to seed production.
Grow it as the indoor to harvest leaves year round or as the annual herb in the garden. Use either fresh green leaves or dry, pulverized or "powdered" leaves to sweeten drinks, salads and other foods.
We recommend it to start warm inside with a short cold/moist period.
