GREEN LEAF AMARANTHUS
This is a dwarf type variety, 3-8″ (8-22cm) high, newly developed and has become a very popular vegetable because of its excellent quality. Soft texture and tender stems and leaves in light green color are very delicious, suitable for stir-fry, soup and salad. Plants grow very well and fast in warm climates, suitable for spring/summer/early fall crops. This fast-growing vegetable can be harvested 30 days after sowing, by the cut-and-grow-again method. Seeds are very small and will germinate best at temperature above 65 F (18 oC) under dark conditions. Thin plants during growth if necessary and thinnings can be eaten. Edible young leaves and stems are cooked like spinach.
