AMARANTH BICOLOUR GREENS

300 seeds –  Amaranthus caudatus

A really delicious variety, very rich in vitamin A, C & iron, low in calories by volume, but high in protein per calorie. Fast growing leaf protein. Each fresh green leaf is liberally doused with a rich plum red, a true bi-colour. The leaves have a sweet tangy flavour & can be cooked as an extra veggie. Also known as Hinn Choi, Een choy, or Yin Choi. This heat lover is a very nutritious leaf vegetable. It has large, fleshy, burgundy & green leaves that go well in salads. They can also be cooked quickly, faster than spinach.
