Plant: After last frost

Amaranthus hypocondriacus

200 seeds/pack   |   98-110 days   |   Heirloom

This grain amaranth produces golden seeds with a high protein profile. Known as an ancient grain of the Americas, it is still popular today (known as kiwicha) in Peru.  These plants will easily reach 7-8 feet and need good spacing. This is one of the easiest grains for home gardeners to grow and eat. To harvest, allow seeds to dry partially on plant and then cut seed heads into a paper bag or onto a sheet for further processing. Be watchful at this stage—little birds also love these seeds!
