Chinese Multicolor Spinach Amaranth

A heat- and drought-tolerant green in spectacular splashes of color! Leaf amaranth is popular in Asia, eaten raw, stir-fried, or steamed. This is by far the most tender and sweetest amaranth for edible greens, making for a vibrant and delicious salad. The young leaves are a perfect spinach substitute; the intricately colored leaves are juicy and succulent. This is the go-to “green” for mid-summer when all others have bolted; harvested just 30-40 days from sowing. Minimum Seed Count: 100

Good to start from seed in these months:

North Florida: April-August 

Central Florida: March-September

South Florida: February-October
