Abstract: The Sweet Herb of Paraguay, Stevia rebaudiana (Bert.) Bertoni is fast becoming a major source of high potency sweetener which produces sweet taste but has no calorific value. Many research activities on its chemical and biological properties have been done in recent past. Several countries including India have started its commercial cultivation. The published literature on this crop is quite scattered. Therefore an effort to compile the literature and review the current status of research and development including cultivation practices has been done in this paper.
