🌿 Welcome to the Spectacular World of Emerald Tassels Amaranthus! 🌿


About: (Amaranthus caudatus) Annual.

Dive into a mesmerizing experience with Emerald Tassels Amaranthus, offering a spectacular show of green flower/seed heads for your kitchen and floral arrangements. This versatile plant not only captivates with its aesthetics but also provides edible leaves, flowers, and seeds.


Key Features:

  • 🌱 Growth Habit: Upright growth up to 6 feet with round to heart-shaped leaves and draping flower clusters.
  • ☀️ Sun Requirements: Flourishes in full sun, thriving in hot, humid conditions.
  • 🌱 Soil Preference: Enjoys average, well-drained soil.
  • 📅 When to Plant: Direct seed in late Spring after the risk of frost has passed OR start indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date.

How to Plant:

  • Direct Sow: Plant seeds in soil, ⅛” deep, covering lightly, as seeds need light to germinate. Keep soil moist until germination. Thin young plants 1-2 feet apart.
  • Transplant: Sow seeds in containers ⅛” deep, covering lightly with soil. Keep soil moist until germination. Transplant after the risk of frost. Space young plants 1-2 feet apart.

When to Harvest:

  • Harvest baby leaves as microgreens, tender green leaves once the plant reaches at least 1 foot, cut flowers when nearly fully open through Summer and into Fall, and seeds when they ripen in late Summer to early Fall.

How to Harvest:

  • Cut baby leaves or pick mature tender greens as needed.
  • Cut flowers on long stems, remove lower leaves to prevent premature wilt.
  • Cut seed heads and bundle them to dry indoors in a dry, dark space. Knock the bundles inside paper bags to easily gather seeds as they fall, then separate the yummy seeds from the papery chaff.

Uses:

  • Amaranth has edible leaves, flowers, and seeds.
  • Enjoy baby leaves as a microgreen, larger leaves as a tender cooked green, and the seeds as a high protein, gluten-free grain or flour.
  • The mature, draping flowers are beautiful in fresh cut flower arrangements, including floral crowns.
