Features & Highlights
- Amarath Red Garnet || FREE SHIPPING || NON GMO
- Amaranth 'Garnet Red' is a cultivar of the Amaranth tricolour species with a deep, intense crimson red colouring. Although it is an annual plant, it can quickly reach up to 1.6 meters producing a striking garden display. It is the most intensely coloured amaranth and produces the best colour in very warm conditions. The leaves are red tinged on the darkish grey-green surface and a deeper red underneath. The veins also appear red and the colour intensifies with the heat.
- Amaranth Red Garnet may be used the same way as Edible Red Amaranth for a variety of culinary purposes. It has the same high nutritional value and the added benefit of being able to be harvested sooner. Experts suggest using Red Garnet in 3 or even 4 stages. Firstly, the young sprouts or micro greens may be used and they are red even at this stage. Secondly, the young tender leaves may be used as nutritious small salad greens or reds in this case, where they provide an excellent leaf display.
- Thirdly, the larger leaves may be used as a spinach replacement in the same manner as other amaranths. And, the fourth use is as the seed and grain. Although, you may not produce very much seed, it may still be used in small ways by including it in cereals or breads. However, failing this, the plant can be let to go to seed which will provide a new crop the following year and enable the local birdlife to have a feast.
- Medicinal Uses The general use of amaranth today is ornamental and edible, with limited use for health maintenance. Amaranth contains tannins and some varieties of amaranth have had some traditional use as astringents and tonics, for example a mouth gargle for mouth ulcers or digestive concerns.
