Amaranth- Burgundy

Recommending planting requirements: This warm season plant can be grown year round in San Diego. It’s immature leaves are tasty and full of nutrients while the flower spikes are beautiful and produce huge amounts of seeds that can be used for grain.  It is an all around fantastic plant with multiple uses.

Growing Recommendations: Give plant space and it will get very large and may need staking to keep it’s huge flower spikes upright. Direct sow, keep soil moist and weed in first weeks to reduce competition.

Harvesting Recommendations: Pick baby or mature greens as needed. Simply cut them with scissors as you would lettuces. The leaves have a tasty, nutty flavor. If growing for seed/grain provide ample spacing and harvest seeds buy rubbing flower spikes and releasing seeds.
