Amaranth

Also known as Chinese Spinach or Joseph's Coat, Amaranth is an ornamental annual, a valuable cutting flower and a culinary green. It may be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks prior to transplanting outside after the last spring frost date, or it may be direct-sown after the last possible frost date. It may be grown as a tender baby leaf for upscale salad mixtures or as a mature leaf when it may be cooked in much the same way as Spinach. As a mature leaf, its rich, earthy flavor is perfect in soups, stews and sautes. But wait, there's more. Amaranth seed can be crushed into gluten-free flour and its decorative red bracts can be used as a natural dye. It is one amazing plant. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 1 year.
