Callaloo Amaranth Greens
[Jamaican variety, via Melissa DeSa in FL.]
Tasty, quick growing, self sowing hot weather greens popular throughout the African diaspora, as well as in Asian cuisines. The abundant leaves are usually eaten cooked, and are sometimes referred to as Chinese spinach. The upright branched plants can reach 6-8 ft. tall in favorable conditions. Cucumber beetles chew some holes in the leaves, but seldom slow down growth.
Culture: after last frost, sow or transplant 3-week-old seedlings. For continuous harvest, plant every 2-4 weeks. Space plants up to 18 in. apart. Harvest before plants flower. Self-sows. Callaloo is tolerant of poor soil, root knot nematodes, and bacterial wilt – good greens for almost any garden!
