Red Amaranth

This ancient grain was a major food source for the Aztecs, now grown as a green and a grain across the world, mostly on a domestic level. Mild flavoured, but you only need look to be impressed. This will stand out on any plate, perhaps not a tomato soup.

It grows slowly but never gets very tall in our trays.
