Hopi Red Dye Amaranth

$ 3.69

(Amaranthus cruentus) Originally collected in Lower Moenkopi by Native Seeds/SEARCH and known locally as Komo, this bright red amaranth is commonly used by the Hopi natives to make pink colored piki or tortillas.  Tall, 6' plants are topped by long, highly branched inflorescences, colored intense red by their tiny brachts.  Young, red-tinged leaves are often used in salads and tiny, black seeds can be sprouted into microgreens.  90-100 days to maturity.  200 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  After danger of frost has passed surface sow seeds and cover with a very fine layer of soil.  Space seeds 2-3" apart in rows 24-36" apart.  Thin to one plant every 6" after germination has occurred (5-7 days).
