    Notes & Growing Tips: Amaranth is a very small, delicate microgreen that prefers warmer growing conditions, so find a nice warm spot for germination and growing. It can also be sensitive to too much direct light. It does not grow tall, so expect very small greens that will need to be harvested close to the root line and rinsed well. It does equally well grown hydroponically or in soil. It can sometimes be a little more challenging to grow well.

    Flavor & Culinary Tips:

    The thin plants contain a robust flavor, similar to mustard but much less spicy. It can add depth to any dish that requires fresh greens--or in this case, reds!

    It's striking colors make at a great garnish or an addition to any micro greens salad.

    ***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums. Results may vary.
