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.

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.
