Sweety Star represents a breakthrough in stevia breeding. Leaves are thinner and more consistently sweet than other seed raised stevia. Dried, ground leaves are a powerful herbal sweetener, up to 30 times sweeter than sugar, and nearly calorie free. Small, toothed leaves are held on slightly woody stems, white flowers appear in late summer. Sweety Star stevia plants grow to 2 ft. tall, are perennial in zones 9 and 10, can be grown as an annual everywhere.
