Amaranth – 1000 seeds (Free Postage)
Amaranth – Red Aztec (Amaranthus tricolor)
Amaranth Microgreens have an Incredible colour, kind of a faded pink with purple leaves, very striking! A sweet taste with a slightly nutty earthiness. A good source of riboflavin, folate and manganese. Perfect to garnish a salad.
Use a seedling tray or compostable pot and fill with good quality compost, liberally sprinkle your seeds, and cover with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Water lightly at first and then regularly moisten with water from a hand-held spray bottle, with a little humidity from a propagator or sunny windowsill. When they have developed their first true leaves (the leaves after the fleshier seed leaves) they are ready, the perfectly easy way to add some flavour and colour to meals, smoothies and homemade grub!
Germination should occur within 3-4 days and be ready to harvest in 10-16 days.
