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.
