Ratings & Reviews
Amaranth- Red LeafThese 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!
Amaranth- Red LeafQuite disappointed, that the seed seemed to be red gauntlet.
