Amaranth White Leaf
Edible amaranth is also called Chinese Spinach. This comes in mainly two varieties - as green leaves and as green leaves with red stripes in the center leaf. The plant produces a high yield of tender leaves and grows vigorously in warm temperatures. The leaves and stems are rich in iron and calcium. Amaranth will tolerate hot, dry and moist conditions but will not thrive in cold temperatures.
