    I’ve grown amaranth many times now. These “greens” (reds?) are on the thinner side, so it’s harder to get a large quantity. But I love the beautiful red color and the fast germination time!

  7. drkamlesh.agarwala (verified owner)

    Excellent germination beautiful color but this time thinner sides makes it difficult to harvest.

  8. Christina B. (verified owner)

    I have these seeds in a mix which also includes broccoli, kohlrabi, and mustard. These guys are pretty small, but they do add a fun red color to the mix. Recommended!
