Latin Name: Amaranthus cruentus
Days to Maturity: 90
Very similar in appearance to Burgundy Amaranth, but a bit taller and with striking shiny black seeds instead of white. Originally from Sonora, Mexico, it was used as a grain and to make pinole and atole. Prolific production of seeds (pseudo grain) can be shaken from flower plumes when mature, and plants can be left in the garden to feed birds all through autumn with the seeds that remain. Self seeds easily.
