Amaranth 'Golden Giant' is a high-protein, gluten-free grain. The large plumes of golden-brown flowers bloom from mid summer to fall, and the ripening seeds attract flocks of birds.

Golden Giant is a heavy producer of delicious, white seeds. This is the best amaranth for grain production for home gardeners. 98-110 days to maturity.

Hopi Red Dye has shiny black seeds that can be cooked for cereal or ground into a gluten-free flour. The tender, young leaves of this variety are my favorite for adding to soups. 110 days to maturity.
