(Amaranthus cruentus) Gorgeous red flower heads loaded with white seeds. Excellent variety for grain production, yet also visually stunning for decorative use. Like all amaranth varieties, young leaves can be eaten as a spinach substitute. 4 to 5 feet tall- Opopeo takes a long season to fully ripen seeds so start indoors in April to transplant out if growing for grain. Heirloom from Mexico.
