Red Garnet Amaranth is a thin, delicate microgreen, but it’s bursting with a robust, earthy flavor.

Its striking colors make it a great garnish or as an addition to any salad.

Amaranth prefers warm growing conditions, so find a warm spot for germination and growth. A seed heating mat helps germination and speeds up maturity.

    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!

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

    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!
