Organic Amaranth, Burgundy (1 oz)

Organic Amaranth, Burgundy (1 oz)

An Edible Landscaping Star

Amaranth - Burgundy - Amaranthus hypochondriacus

Tender Annual Heirloom. The white seeds were an important grain in the Aztec diet.Amaranth grain is gluten free and a complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids including lysine, which is lacking in cereal grains. Grow this as a nutritious, rice-like grain, or for the bright leaves to use in salads. Amaranth is an edible landscaping star with its human height and plumed flowers.

Did You Know? Amaranth is a pseudo cereal, meaning the seed is used like a cereal grain, even though it is a broadleaf plant not a grass.

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

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

Harvesting & Storage: For greens, harvest the entire plant before flowers appear. 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.

Soil Temperature: 60-90°F
Planting Depth: 1/4"
Germination: 5-10 Days
Height At Maturity: 6’-8’
Days to Maturity: 100 Days
Spacing After Thinning: 8"-12"
