The amazing green and red foliage and blooms of Red Garnet Amaranth will be a perfect addition to your garden whether used as a herb or not ! Green foliage shows its red highlights best when the temperature becomes hot. The sprouts are delicately flavored  and can be used as a garnish starting in 20 days to get harvested. Young leaves can be cooked like spinach.

It remains a staple food in modern Mexico and some parts of Asia, being prepared in numerous dishes from sweet to savory. One traditional Mexican treat known as "alegria" is made with amaranth grain and honey or molasses.
