Amaranth Mekong Red

  • Botanical Name: Amaranthus tricolor

Very useful red leafed Amaranth with broad dented leaves adding vivid colour to salad mixes. In China and Japan, Amaranth is also widely used in soups, stir-fry dishes, or steamed as a side dish, combining well with ginger, grated Radish, soy sauce and lemon, etc, to make a delicious Oriental dish. Whenever your Chinese cookbook calls for Spinach, use Amaranth. (30 days baby leaf, 50 days maturity)

Matures 50 days from direct sowing.
