Burgundy Amaranth

Amaranthus hypochondriacus

An important food of the ancient Mayan and Aztecs amaranth is grown for its white seeds and beautiful leaves. This variety is striking! It is great as a border plant or in the cutting garden growing to 6' tall plants with burgundy leaves, stems and plumes. Young leaves are a beautiful addition to salads. The grain can be cooked like rice or popped like popcorn. It is gluten free and a complete protein containing 13-15 g of protein per 100 g. Its leaves and seed contain important B vitamins, vitamin E and almost all amino acids important for the human body (a "complete protein"). This plant is drought tolerant and adaptable to marginal soils.
