These majestic plants make a lovely backdrop in the flower garden and a bold statement in flower arrangements. A major crop of the Aztecs, beige seeds follow the dramatic, burgundy plumes in about 105 days; very high in protein and other nutrients. Cook like rice for a side dish or pop like popcorn! Leave the seeds on and watch the birds flock to your yard. Very young leaves are delectable for salads and steaming.

I grew this wonderful plant for the first time last year. If you could see the photos of these tall majestic deep red plumes all around the outside fence of my flower garden, you would be in awe! I have a small cut flower business and they were one of my top producers, with so many customer comments on their beauty. After the center plume is cut, many side shoots are produced. I highly recommend you giving this plant a try! (Note: this plant does need support since it can grow to 8 feet)

I started these along with a bunch of other flowers and herbs, and these were the first to sprout. I think all the seeds came up, I had to prick some out and get more containers. A few weeks on they are looking healthy and growing at a steady rate.
