A beautiful red amaranth from the Indian state of Kerala, where amaranth is a popular garden crop, making great stir-fried and steamed greens. This variety has pretty stems, foliage and flowers. Harvest leaves young when still tender.

Review:

I bought a packet of these seeds in 2011 or 2012 but never planted them. I found them this spring (2015) and just decided to sprinkle them around in the garden instead of throwing them away. It is now August and I have had amaranth greens all summer. I've been picking the small plants whole so they don't take over, but I left a few in my raised beds and now have a number of gorgeous 6' tall amaranth plants that are protecting more heat sensitive plants from the August sun. They transplant easily too. I dug some up to move them to better spots and they didn't seem to notice at all. These plants also easily withstand 80-90 degree weather with very low water requirements (they are happy with a squirt once a week). I suspect they will get much bigger as well. I learned about this variety from the farm at the community college where I teach. They had two plants they had left growing off to the side of the rows. These reached 8' before they pulled them out.

Review:

I have grown these plants for over 20 years. Here in Ohio they can grow to 7 ft and easily branch out to look like a small tree. they germinate late and do not like to be transplanted, but self sow easily. they are spectacular in a grouping or by themselves. the leaves and the plants are the same color. they are excellent to act as shade for another plant or even to grow as a secret garden space for the kids.

Review:

Grown in zone 5, in black organic soil, the plants grew 5 ft tall....early growth stages were edible, fresh or steamed....became a beautiful row of deep purple foilage and seedheads.....seeds easily harvested in the fall.....will plant again, to use as a back of the border plant for other shorter flowers in the front....
