saw MONSTER plants of this amaranth last year at the Seminole Heights Community Garden! Cool to see more and more seedlings of the giant form of Calalloo that I was given seeds of at two of Andy Firk's events popping up in this unseasonal heat! Both women who gave me the seeds described incredible vigor, self sows like crazy, comes back with a vengeance even when the main stalk is cut back HARD. The leaves I sampled raw were very mild and tender, so I am psyched to have this new-to-me summer crop. I didn't get much seed as the flower heads they gave me were immature like they said, but I think so far I've shared with two summer's end we should all have oodles of the seeds.
