Elena's Rojo Amaranth

Red-flowering amaranth from Guatemala, where amaranth has been a staple crop for many centuries. This grain type amaranth has recently been revived in the Mayan communities of Baja Verapaz after almost being lost during the civil war. Named after Elena, an indigenous farmer who was primarily responsible for the recovery of this rare local variety.

You can support Qachuu Aloom and the seed saving movement in Guatemala, by simply purchasing the Aurelia, Elena, and Juana Amaranth seeds and Baker Creek will donate 100% of each sale to the Qachuu Aloom Seed Savers.
