25 days. Amaranthus caudatus. Open Pollinated. Produces high yields of bright red amaranth leaves. This beautiful plant is a favorite vegetable in China & Vietnamese. Amaranth loves the heat! A fast growing variety with tender leaves and stalks. Harvest before flowers appear. Highly nutritional greens. Amaranth greens are high in protein. Great for stir fry and other Oriental dishes. Amaranth can be ground into flour and mixed with other grains. It can also be boiled and used in sauces, soups and stews. Also known as Chinese Spinach, Kiwicha, and Yin Choi. Excellent choice for home gardens. A variety from Mexico.

Pretty good germination. Wish there was a 1/4 lbs purchase option.
