About Growing As A Micro Green.
Micro greens are eaten fresh and raw, and the fresher the leaves are, the more vitamins and minerals they contain. To grow as a micro green sow densely on firm soil in a 10cm pot, let them grow to 10cm tall before harvesting the baby leaves for your salads.
In The Records
The genus name Amaranthus originally comes from the Greek word Auapavboc meaning "one that does not wither" or 'unfading'. Stands to reason with Amaranth's reputation for loving a heat wave.
