Amaranth or Amaranthus is a tropical and sub-tropical seasonal crop categorized as a leafy vegetable, cereal, and also as an ornamental plant. Resembling spinach in looks and artichoke in taste, the red leaf amaranth is full of nutritional benefits that surpass most of its green leafy counterpart. It is naturally gluten-free and is also a great addition to gluten-free dishes. It also comprises the amazing protein lysine and comes packed with all the other essential amino acids too. Not just this, uncooked red amaranth consists of 82% iron, 31% calcium, and 14% Vitamin C. So eating these pretty looking leaves raw in salads and sandwiches is a health treat all by itself!

The other nutrients and minerals, this vegetable is rich in, includes magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, and dietary fibre. It's intake is very beneficial to the heart, as it lowers bad cholesterol levels. The easy to digest leaves are also known to improve eyesight, prevent excessive hair loss, and premature greying. With so much that the beautiful red leaves can offer, take in as much as you can. Cook it, stir fry, or come up with a completely new way of having this vegetable!
Growing guide for Amaranthus Red Seeds

Planting instructions

Gather the seeds and plant in late fall by spreading the seeds along the field.

Amaranthus seeds can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or started indoors for transplanting later.

Space seeds or seedlings 10-12" apart. They will tolerate a little crowding, and look good in clumps or groups.

Amaranth is a warm season crop that requires full sun. Best germination occurs when soil temperatures are warm and grows well by planting in the same spot as leaf lettuce or radishes.

Growing Requirements

watering

Water the plant regularly, with small quantities of water every morning. Amaranth is fairly drought-tolerant.

pests

The plants are vulnerable to Tarnished plant bug and Amaranth weevil. The pests swarm around the growing seed heads and suck the fluid out, they can stunt the seed production. The weevils are a 2-stage threat with the larvae chewing on the roots and the adults going after the leaves.

soil

Amaranthus needs soil with a pH ranging between PH 4.2 to 9.1. It grows well in well- drained soil rich in Nitrogen and Phosperous

spot

Amaranthus prefers warm climate with six to eight hours of full sun

temperature

Amaranth germinates best at soil temperatures around 25 degree celsius (72 degree F)

how to harvest

To determine if it is ready for harvest, keep a sheet of clean paper under the bent over seed head and shake gently. If you see tiny, shiny black seeds falling on the paper,the crop is ready for harvest.

Once the seeds begin to readily fall from the tassels, take the seed heads in your hands and rub them over a bucket to catch the seed. This method of harvesting lessens the amount of debris and chaff that needs to be removed.

Once you have harvested the amaranth, it needs to be completely dried before you store to avoid molding. Leave it on trays to dry in the sun before storing.
