Growing Calendar for Micro Leaves Amaranth Red Army-Seeds
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
The intense cherry red colour of this Micro leaf makes it a firm favourite with trendy chefs! The young leaves are tender and nutritious with a delicate pea-like flavour, ideal for salads or garnish.
We'd never eaten these before, but they look lovely - wonderful red colour. They germinated very quickly and in just a week on a cool window ledge, they are almost ready for eating - second pairs of leaves growing very well. I've tried a couple and although not yet at their optimum eating stage, they taste very good - crisp, reminiscent of young chard stems, and remarkably succulent for something so small! The best bit is that growing them in Marshall's growing kit is that there is no messy compost, and the stems lift out cleanly from the growing mat. Excellent!
These Amaranth seeds are lovely to grow, I add to salads, sandwiches, and as a garnish; they are gluten free and nutritious. They add a touch of finesse to dishes, like chefs use when dining out.
