Amaranth/Callaloo 'Suriname'

(Amaranthus sp.) We’ve grown ornamental amaranths for many years, and while we’ve long known them to be nutrient dense greens (as well as beautiful blooms), we haven’t really pursued much of a culinary relationship with the plant. This variety was shared with us by fellow seedsman/breeder Jay Bost of Go Farm Hawaii as his favorite for the greens heavy Caribbean staple dish callaloo. Different greens are used in different regions, but in the southern Caribbean (Suriname, Guyana) its amaranth. This variety is originally from Suriname and Jay has grown it in for years first in Florida, and then Oahu so we naturally thought it would be a perfect fit for the PNW(!) Fortunately, Amaranth is not a picky plant (pigweed anyone?) and it grew a lush bushy forest of greens with unruly sprays of copper seedheads to 7’. Tender young greens are best and the bushy plants provideth aplenty.
50 days, greens. UO
