Amaranth (Grain Golden) Seeds
Amaranth is an annual plant growing to 2m tall. It is very hardy, handling dry conditions well but fertile soil is preferred for a larger more robust plant that will result in a better grain/seed harvest. Once the seed heads begin to dull to a pale yellow/white colour you will find mature seeds within the head. Harvest the whole head and allow it to dry for at least 1-2 weeks. You can then get the seeds out of the head with some basic seed cleaning equipment such as a screen, buckets and fan.
- Sow direct in garden or into seedling trays and transplant when 5cm tall
- Frost tender
- 120 days to grain harvest
