Description

Elephant Head Amaranth (Amaranthus gangeticus) is a striking heirloom variety brought to the United States in the late 1800s. Plants typically reach a stout two to three feet and form giant burgundy flower heads shaped like an elephant’s trunk. Young edible leaves are delicious steamed like spinach and the mature seeds are high in protein, and can be cooked like a grain or ground to make flour.
