You do not strip off all the leaves from the plant, but rather harvest and use them as needed. The leaves may be harvested at any time (year round), but the best flavor can be had from larger, mature leaves. To harvest leaves, cut the older leaves from the stem with a pair of scissors, or you can gently pull the leaves off of the stem by hand.
