Amaranth, Pink Beauty

A heat-tolerant and tender green perfect for those looking to infuse magenta color into their culinary color palette! The tender, bright pink stems and soft, glossy green leaves make this a gourmet spinach substitute. Among the heat-tolerant greens, this one is especially refined and tasty. It hails from southern India, where you can find these greens sliced into ribbons and stir fried with chilies, garlic, curry leaf, and grated fresh coconut. The greens are endlessly versatile, and we enjoy them raw and cooked. A powerhouse of nutrition and very heat tolerant for summer. A gorgeous addition to the garden -- an edible ornamental indeed!
