THESE PLANTS SHIP FROM OUR GROWER IN FLORIDA. SHIPPING INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.
Stevia Rebaudiana is a member of the sunflower family from Central and South America. Growing to about 3 feet, it has been used there for centuries as a sweetener in things like Yerba Mate’ tea (available in our store). The leaf itself is about 25 times stronger than cane sugar, and extracts can be hundreds of times stronger. The taste of stevia, which is attributed to stevioside and rebaudioside, is not exactly the same as that of sugar and lasts longer. Stevia is also free of calories. Today, it is widely used in Japan, and has gained attention among diabetics and those who cannot take sugar. Stevia leves can be used fresh or dried. Plants are nice, established starter size plants in 4” pots with a shipping weight of 1.5lbs.
We ship live plants on Mondays and Tuesdays only, so please allow at least 1 week for shipping. SORRY, NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ON LIVE PLANTS.
**Buyer is responsible for frozen plants. USPS is heated, so the plant will be fine unless you leave it at your door too long. But if you are in a cold area and cannot get the plant right away, signature confirmation can be added to the shipping cost. They will hold the plant until you pick it up.
