Callaloo Amaranth

(Amaranthus viridis) [Jamaican variety, via Melissa DeSa in FL.] Tasty, quick growing, self sowing hot weather greens popular throughout the African diaspora, as well as in Asian cuisines. The abundant leaves are usually eaten cooked, and are sometimes referred to as Chinese spinach. The upright branched plants can reach 6-8 ft. tall in favorable conditions. Cucumber beetles chew some holes in the leaves, but seldom slow down growth.
