Hello,
I grow stevia at home but when I extraxt it or taste the leaves it is sweet but then some horrible vegetable bitterness overcomes everything and honestly, it is useless as a sweetener.
So does anyone have a way to grow stevia or extract it so that the bitterness can be reduced or eliminated.
Is is my growing conditions?

Stevia has been used for over 1500 years by the native Guarani Indians of Paraguay. Today Stevia is grown around the world, primarily in Asia and South America.
