Amaranthus green seed

For more than 8,000 years, amaranth has been grown as a grain. Amaranth's grain yield is comparable to that of rice or corn. It was an essential component of Aztec religious rituals and a staple diet among the people of that culture. The grain is popped, then honey is added.

Rajgira is the name given to it in North India. The popular snack served during the Mid-day Meal Program in municipal schools, laddus, is made with iron and energy-rich melted jaggery and popped grain in the right proportions.

Common Name -    slender amaranth or green amaranth.

Height                       -   Plants grown in average garden soil will be four-feet to six-feet tall, while those grown in rich soil or compost may reach over eight feet.

Bloom Time           -   Summer (June to September) 

Difficulty Level -   Easy

Planting and care
