The ‘White Leaf’ Edible Amaranth Plant is a dwarf type amaranth, growing slower and smaller than most varieties, making it an ideal container plant for your patio garden. You can grow the White Leaf Amaranth as densely as you please, using the tender plants as you thin them for salads, stir-fry dishes and soups. Let the larger, older plants go to seed and harvest those protein-packed seeds, preparing them like quinoa or sprinkling them into your favorite smoothies or over oatmeal for a protein boost. This variety produces more lightly colored, smoother leaves, with a nicely rounded shape, sometimes somewhat crinkled and more closely resembling spinach than most varieties, but with that characteristic smooth, savory flavor.
The healthiest Edible Amaranth plants will be grown in soil high in organic matter or compost and in full sunlight. Transplant and/or harvest during the coolest parts of the day.
All our 'White Leaf' Amaranth Plants are organically grown and shipped in fine quality growing medium. They are guaranteed to arrive alive and ready to plant.
