What are the pros? attractive, pest free, fast
What are the cons? nothing yet
I purchased these seeds just to try something new. I scattered some of the tiny seeds in a recently refreshed planter on the deck. The seeds spouted easily and grew fast. It is an attractive plant on the deck. I have enjoyed Amaranth for dinner twice now using this recipe: first saute some onion and garlic with ground black pepper and crushed red pepper, then add the washed greens with moisture still clinging and stir until wilted, and then squeeze some lime juice on top. I will be planting another batch soon. (My plant's leaves were not nearly as large as the picture conveys -- more like 2")
