A lovely orange variety from Guatemala; primarily used for grain which is rich in vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E and iron; this variety has been revived in the Mayan communities of Baja Verapaz after almost being lost during the civil war; named after Juana,(pictured) the woman whose family revived and saved seeds of this delicious variety.Orange-flowering amaranth, grown primarily for grain in its native land, the region around Baja Verapaz, Guatemala. The name commemorates Juana, the Mayan farmer whose efforts conserved the seed of this priceless 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.

What are the pros? easy to grow , beautiful color

What are the cons? labor intensive to harvest

Review:

First amaranth I've ever grown. Amazing how a seed as small as a pinhead can grow into 8 ft plant with a 3" stalk in a season. I really like the color. Easy enough to grow. I find it's labor intensive to harvest and thresh , but I'm sure that in time, I'll come up with a better way.
