Amaranthus tricolor

  • Attractive red leaves

This variety of Amaranth is most commonly grown as a leaf vegetable; it's fantastic for baby leaf, salad greens, sprouts or microgreens. The plants produce large burgundy red/slightly green leaves that have excellent flavour and tender texture.  Very popular in Asian cuisine; excellent in soups, stews, salads and stir-fries. Fast growing. Very nutritious. Heat tolerant. Pick leaves as required.  Plants do well in hot weather.  Young leaves are tender and used as a salad green, mature leaves are cooked like spinach. 

Can also be grown as an ornamental.  Annual growing to 200cm.  Upright plants with attractive burgundy red/green leaves producing large attractive red flowers.  Great for beds, borders, mass planting and cottage gardens.  Seeds can also be harvested from mature plants and used as a grain.
