What are the pros? beauty, great trap crop
What are the cons? reseeds freely
I grow 3 types of amaranth. They are all easy to germinate, they are beautiful and they are a wonderful trap crop. Bugs eat the leaves, not the seeds. Since they bugs are full of amaranth, they don't eat the other veggies. Win, win. They can have the leaves-I get the seeds!
