Organic Hopi Red Dye Amaranth HEIRLOOM With deep burgundy young leaves and remarkably spinach-like flavor, it's not surprising how popular growing amaranth for salad has become. Especially because amaranth grows brilliantly in summer when true spinach would either not germinate or bolt in a flash. The best, most tender and mild salad greens are harvested when the plant has less than a ten leaves; we sow a few feet every two weeks for continual harvest of the highest quality salad greens.

The mature plant is extraordinarily ornamental, its dark crimson seed heads dramatically droop from 5+ feet over its wide burgundy leaves. The seeds of Hopi Red Dye are deep red and edible, cultivated as a sacred ceremonial food in the Hopi tradition.

We also grow Hopi Red Dye for bright burgundy micro and baby greens from October through April indoors.
