Stevia 'Sweet Honey' (Stevia rebaudiana) is a very valuable plant grown as a natural substitute for sugar and artificial sweeteners. It is estimated to be about 300 times sweeter than sugar and contains no calories! A teaspoon of powdered stevia corresponds to a glass of sugar. Its leaves have a specific sweet taste with a slight aftertaste of greens. It grows very lush and is extremely efficient. It can be consumed raw, as a sweetener, e.g. for tea, sweeten preparations, e.g. jams, dried or used for hot dishes. Suitable for growing in the ground and in pots. It grows up to about 30 cm tall.
