Amaranthus cruentus

50 days for leaves. 90-120 days for grains.

Red Garnet can be used as a cooked green, allowed to flower for a beautiful display in the garden or grow it for grain!

Red Garnet Amaranth will make a stunning addition to your edible flower or vegetable garden. We've had this beautiful plant grow to 10-12 feet!

Amaranth is generally sown as a summer annual, but if you live in areas that have cooler, shorter seasons, sow seeds indoors in the early spring and transplant outside after all danger of frost has passed. Choose a location that receives full sun and plant in the garden using a final spacing of fourteen inches. Seeds can take fourteen to twenty-one days to germinate at soil temperatures between 70 to 75ºF.

Days to Germinate: 3-10 Days
