Hot crop! Remarkable herbal sugar substitute! Contains stevioside, hundreds of times sweeter than sugar but without the calories. Leaf powder can be used in place of sugar in drinks, baked goods, desserts, preserves, etc. Has a pleasant flavour of its own that never dominates or overwhelms to which it is added. |
A hot crop for commercial growers! Richters is proud to offer high quality seed for commercial growers. There are 2500-3000 seeds/gram. Please note that grower discounts do not apply to stevia seeds at 500 grams and up.
