Description:

* With its extracts having up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar, stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives.

* Medical research has also shown possible benefits of stevia in treating obesity and high blood pressure. Because stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets.

* Sweetness can vary from 10-600 times sweeter than sugar, dependent on a range of factors from soil, climate, time of harvest and many others.

*It is NOT a true substitute for sugar in all recipes. It does not dissolve, it does not make a syrup. Consider it as a flavouring, much as you would vanilla

* Propagate by seeds, by tip cuttings or root division. Seeds are slow to germinate.

* Flowering usually occurs 54-104 days after transplanting.

* The plant is climatically suited the temperature between 21-43 degree celcius, with an average of 24 degree celcius.

* As long as the roots are alive, the plant may regrow.

Growing Instruction:

* Poor, loose, well drained soil is recommended. The plants need to be well-mulched so that surface feeder roots do not dry out.

* Stevia requires regular watering in dry periods but has poor tolerance to long waterlogging or to saline water or soils.

* Plants also respond well to liquid seaweed as a foliage spray applied fortnightly.

*As soon as the plant flowers, the leaf production slows down. Nip off flower buds, to encourage further leaf development. If the plant is left to flower, the tip leaves take on a slightly bitter overtone. Plant will die if left go to flower, so it should be cut back repeatedly to prevent flowering.

Culinary Uses:

* Use dried, powdered leaves as a substitute for sugar. One tablespoon of stevia or less is equivalent to about 1 cup sugar.

* If using fresh leaves to replace dried quantities listed above, multiply the amount 5 times.

如何食用

=======

1)功效:生津止渴, 主治:用于消渴、糖尿病、高血压。 甜叶菊是理想的甜味剂,具有热量低的特点,它的含热量只有蔗糖的三百分之一,吃了不会使人发胖,对肥胖症患者和糖尿病人尤为适宜。长期用甜叶菊煮水喝,还有降低血压、促进新陈代谢和强壮身体的功效。

2)鲜叶可以直接食用,干叶也可以,不过干叶多用来泡茶,一次2,3 片就可以。目前没有资料证实一天食用多少量为宜,再好的东西过度总是不好,基本上一包200克干叶可以用半年。如果摘一小片叶子放在嘴里嚼一嚼,就像吃了一口清香的白糖。将甜叶菊干叶搭配其他饮料或花草茶,更添美味,同时还有控制血糖、血压,防止肥胖等功效!

如何栽种

=======

1)甜叶菊对土壤要求不严,喜温耐湿怕旱,其根系较浅,栽培以肥沃潮湿且排灌方便的沙壤土为好。可用种子、扦插、压条、分株等方式繁殖。它是短日照作物,光照长于12小时便不能正常开花结果。

2)甜叶菊种子在20℃温度下的发芽势和发芽率最高。播种前要除去种子冠毛,经风选或水选,浸种一天后晾干。播种后保持床土湿润,出苗30天以后选取具有10片真叶的苗移栽。

3)苗高10厘米后,可不断打顶摘心,促使多分枝。整个生长期,特别是幼苗期,要注意水分管理。生长旺期,可适时追肥2~3次,并结合进行中耕除草培土。割叶前半个月施复合肥,以提高叶片甜度。

4)当植株出现花蕾时,是叶片含菊糖甙量最高的时候,应及时收获。收割时从离地面20厘米处割断。

5)需要采种的植株,可进行短光照处理,即在甜叶菊生育盛期(出苗90天后)开始遮光,即下午6时盖上,第二天早晨8点揭开,连续遮光20~25天,就可开花结果。种子很轻,可用塑料袋套住植株后拍打采收。
