What are the pros? Gets huge

What are the cons? Hard to winnow the grain

Review:

Sowed some of those seeds in flats in early June because they are so tiny! I put six plants into the ground in a sunny spot about two weeks later. It was my first time growing amaranth and those did very well in our dry summer conditions (we are in continental western Europe). Those plants grew taller than me by the end of the season and I harvested the seed heads in early October. The stalks got impressively large and hard, too. You could easily dry them and repurpose them. I occasionally chewed a leave or two when the plants were still young. I assume one could harvest the greens regularly to prevent the plant from going to seed too fast if that's what you're interested in. Winnowing the harvested grain was a bit tedious, but I now have thousands of seeds which I'm going to share with my friends. The light green flower heads were gorgeous. The plant's root system also broke my heavy clay soil into sand haha Highly recommended!

Review:

Planted on the equinox in March. Now second week in June and used it in bouquets for the Farmer's Market today & sold out. A stunner. Starts out in a Fibonacci spiral, then flushes out. SO lovely, especially if you're a fan of green "flowers," also keeping in mind this is also becoming FOOD. So good, so cool. 4 stars because there is some discoloration and misshapen ones -- this should be tolerated and seeds saved from the best. It is a worthy plant.
