Extract of this plant is often used in place of sugar, especially in low calorie or diabetic recipes. Leaves of the stevia plant can be used as an extract, dried, fresh, or even ground to a powder to sweeten everything from desserts to drinks. Tropically, this herb is grown as a perennial, but in cooler climates, it must be grown as an annual. There is a derivative of stevia that is often used as sugar substitutes, commercial drink mixes, and other processed foods.

Stevia is best suited to growth in loam to sandy loam conditions but can also be grown in a clay loam soil if placed in a raised bed. Drainage for this plant needs to be exceptional.
