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.
Be careful not to overwater Amaranth.
You can harvest Amaranth either in the cotyledon stage or allow it to grow and harvest when true leave form.
