Red Amaranth is a vegetable variety that has been highly valued since the earliest South American civilisations. Today, in Europe, it’s among the most popular for the production of microgreens: in fact, its leaves, which have a bright violet colour and are rich in protein and iron, give beauty and substance to any recipe.


Organic red Amaranth

Cultivating its seeds is quick and easy, so even those without a green thumb will be able to grow its characteristic leaves, delicate in appearance and taste, with excellent results.
