Chinese Amaranth Red Army

£0.60 / pack(s)

The vibrant cherry red leaves will make a statement in your summer salads: grow them as an edible edge and use then as a cut-and-come-again crop, start picking when they reach 10cm tall.  If you pick then just above a leaf it will encourage your plants to bush out quickly ready to be picked again.

Any larger leaves can be treated like spinach, they are particularly good for adding to stir fry or oriental soup. 

Allow a few plants to grow large and enjoy their upright fountain like flower stems from mid-summer to the autumn

Price for 50 seeds. 

SOW: in the spring & summer, you can start these in trays to plant out when they reach about 5cm tall after being hardened off.  You can also start them in situ by sowing thinly.  You can grow these as a baby leaf at any time of the year on a window sill.  These have a slightly nutty, delicate flavour.
