Traditional grain type from southern Mexico. (“Mercado” means market in Spanish.) Apple-green seed heads give way to delicious, tan grain. This lodge-resistant variety is rather long-season for an amaranth, requiring 125 days to yield mature seed.

Review:

I've grown it now for 2 years now. It is the BEST! Here in Central Texas, it sprouted on an exposed berm and has come back. This year, I plant to make some Green Smoothies along with "Wild Amaranth Quiche" (recipe online). The underside of the leaf is a bit rough for what we expect for greens. OUTSTANDING when it's cooked. Best part about this variety is that it doesn't need watering and comes back on its own. For drought laden areas, this is an ideal green for summer. I can't speak for the other varieties. You can't go wrong with this one!

Review:

FROM PLANTING SEED TO HARVEST OF SEEDS THIS VARIETY NEEDS A TOTAL OF 161 DAYS GROWING TIME, SO PATIENCE IS NEEDED WITH THIS UNIQUE VARIETY
