Amaranth, Golden Giant, Amaranthus cruentus (100-110 days)

A late season grain amaranth also known as "Hot Biscuits" that produces large orange/gold and copper seed heads on top of 6 foot tall stalks. Gorgeous ornamental. Include as a fabulous filler flower in seasonal fall bouquets.   

Edible green leaves with golden brown veins and stalks. Very productive, yielding up to 1 lb of seed per plant. Easy to harvest, simply clip the heads and hang to dry. Once dry, thresh by stomping on them and winnow to remove chaff.  Lends diversity to our diet when incorporated as a staple to supplement other grains like rice, or ground into flour to mix into breads and pancakes. 

Packet (1 1/2g ≈ 1,000 seeds)
