Ratings & Reviews

Amaranth- Red Leaf

These are a great salad amaranth, lovely tender leaves. They sprout quickly but do take a while to mature past the 'microgreen' stage. They self-seed incredibly if you let them go to flower, these seeds are an investment that you can keep going for a very long time!
