DESCRIPTION

Greens - Red Amaranth - Amaranthus viridus

Annual Red Amaranth variety grows beautiful red-striped edible leaves for fresh and cooked uses. This is a favorite leafy vegetable in Chinese and Vietnamese stir-fries and the red amaranth leaves will color the dish red. Unlike many other greens, such as mustard and spinach, amaranth red loves the heat so when your cool weather greens are done heat loving red amaranth will keep you well supplied with tasty, highly nutritious greens. Grow this for the bright leaves or as a nutritious, rice-like grain. Amaranth seeds are also edible and are a protein-rich, gluten free, pseudo grain. This flowering plant can also be use as an ornamental plant with its beautiful red amaranth leaves.

Planting & Care

Soil and Water: Amaranth likes loam and silty loam soil. It is very drought tolerant so water only when dry.

Planting and Growing: Direct seed after soil has begun to warm in spring. The red amaranth seed is very fine so you can mix it with a carrier like sand or coffee grounds. Scatter the seed and rake it in lightly.

Harvesting and Storage: For red amaranth, harvest before flowers appear. You can harvest the entire plant. For seeds harvest after flowers have turned to seed, by cutting the stalk and letting it cure for a few days in a sunny location. Bring it in at night to avoid moisture. Once dried, shake into a paper bag and filter with a sieve.
