Product Description

Sweeter than sugar and very low in calories, use Sweet Leaf Stevia Candy in baking or as a coffee and tea sweetener. Here's how to do it: harvest fresh leaves from the plant, then cut up and steep in warm water. Leave overnight, and in the morning, strain and refrigerate for up to a month. Use as a liquid, or dry it and powder it for future use. Grown as a houseplant in colder areas, its leaves are the sweetest in the cool temps of fall before flowering occurs. It's tolerant of a wide variety of well-drained soils as long as it has full sunlight. In its whole leaf form, Candy Stevia is 30 times sweeter than sugar! 60 days to maturity.
