Edible amaranth is a leafy vegetable with large, light green leaves with red veins in the center leaf. The plant produces a high yield of tender leaves and grows vigorously in warm temperatures. Amaranth will tolerate hot, dry, and moist conditions but will not thrive in cold temperatures. 

Grain: Amaranth - Red Leaf

  • Amaranth needs at least six to eight hours of sunlight daily to perform well. Amend poor soils well with compost, manure or peat moss. Amaranthus cruentus needs moderately fertile, but consistently moist soil, and grows best with a soil pH between 6.5 and 7.5.
