 Organic Sprouting MICROGREEN Amaranth RED LINE 

Amaranth (tricolor) is native to Peru. It?s used as a pseudo-cereal which means that it does not belong to the same food group as true grains but has similar nutritional properties. The seeds of the amaranth are a gold or yellow colour, whereas the micro-greens that grow from the seeds are a copper-red colour and can be harvested once they are 6-7 cm in height.

Cultivation Advice  Organic Sprouting MICROGREEN Amaranth RED LINE 

A simple container with drainage holes or seed tray is ideal.

A small amount of compost or blotting / kitchen paper can be utilised.

The seeds are best in a warm sunny location for germination (Greenhouse in summer / sow facing draft free windowsill)

Soak seeds in water for 4-8 hours and scatter them in a thick layer on growing medium pressing them firmly down.

Water thoroughly and cover with wet newspaper.

Water once per day through the newspaper until the sprouts push up the paper (2-4 days), then remove the paper.

Harvest at 6-7cm in height with scissors, rinse, shake dry and store excess sprouts in fridge in sealed bag or container.
