This natural sweetener many times sweeter than sugar. Leaves can be eaten from the plant like candy or tossed into fruit salads for an unusual addition. It is used since at least the time of the Aztecs for coughs, colds, bronchitis, asthma, and colic. Traditional Mexican folk use of leaves as an expectorant and as a stimulant. Plant is excellent in hanging baskets.
