Product Overview

Amaranthus tricolor

A nutritious, heat-loving summer green. Eat fresh in salads or steam like spinach. Also decorative in flower beds.

This amaranth has nutritious, flavorful foliage with a hearty spinach flavor that is sweet and slightly tangy. Amaranth loves the heat and is drought tolerant once established. It makes a great salad ingredient after spring greens have been harvested or are bolting. Steam, stir-fry, saute, or mix with spaghetti sauce, rice, or meatloaf. Easy to harvest, the seed is about 13% protein-higher than most other grains. 90-110 days to maturity if grown for seeds.

Variety Info

Medium green oval leaves with burgundy red stems and centers. Looks a bit like coleus.

Sowing Inside

6 to 8 weeks before your average last frost date. Sow in biodegradable pots; roots sensitive to disturbance.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date; however, grows fastest when temperatures are warm. Soil temperature for germination should be at least 55°F, ideally 68°–75°F.
