Attractive flowers and red leaves make this amaranth not only edible, but beautiful as well! Young leaves can be used for greens, or let go to seed and harvest for grain. Plants grow 6-8 feet tall.

Review:

We had 100% germination here. I didn't know what to expect; so, I didn't plant very much to begin with. After the first crop got about half way through to full maturity, we loved it so much I decided to grow more. I now have dozens of Amaranth. My back yard faces a park; and, people are so impressed with how beautiful this Garnet Amaranth looks they stop and ask what it is and comment on its beauty. It is definitely a show stopper! Since so many seedling came up, I thinned them and picked out any that had green on the leaves. So,now all of the plants in my garden have a very deep maroon color and the flowers are a brighter maroon color. I wish I could upload a picture. They are truly beautiful! I am anxious for it to go to seed, as the seeds will likely also be delicious. I bought seeds in the past strictly to cook. I made it like a cream of wheat by boiling in water (1 cup seeds per 3 cups water); add cream, vanilla, cinnamon and, top off with sliced banana. My family loves it!

What are the pros? Nice in salads

What are the cons? none

Review:

I've only grown these densely in pots as microgreens, and then added them to salads when they are 3-4 inches tall. They look so beautiful as a garnish in a salad and the flavor is mild and sort of like nutty spinach. I keep a couple small pots of these going all the time. Sometimes you can do the old cut and come again with them too. They do great under lights or out in the sun and as microgreens they do not wilt under the intense noon sun.

Review:

We planted this along the fence line of our garden this year, and we couldn't be more pleased! The packet contained hundreds of seeds, so we over-sowed and used the bright magenta thinnings in salads. They that that subtle but distinctive amaranth taste, and they made every salad look like a work of art. The plants grew tall and healthy with minimal maintenance, and looked beautiful at every stage. Just recently, in mid-September, heavy rain caused the largest plants to fall over under their own weight. This happened a week before the Jewish festival of Sukkot, when we build (and decorate) temporary dwellings. I used the fallen amaranth to decorate our sukkah, and it looks so lovely that we're now committed to growing amaranth for that purpose every year. I'll branch out and try different amaranths next year, but I'm keeping this one in the garden forever.
