"Pygmy Torch" Amaranth Seeds
Pygmy Torch is a dwarf type of amaranth that is stunningly rich in colour. Boasting bi-coloured leaves of green and burgundy, which look amazing in salads - and erect plumes in a dark fuchsia! Beautiful black and brown seeds. It’s gorgeous and would work amazingly in an edible landscape. Works well in containers due to its short stature of about one foot. Use as a grain for cooking, or greens for salad, etc. Greens are best cooked like spinach or harvested when young for salads. Useful and beautiful as a micro green.
(amaranthus hypochondriacus) 1 g per seed pack (several hundred seeds)
