Hopi Red Dye Amaranth

The flowers of the Hopi Red Dye amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus) were traditionally used by the Hopi to make a scarlet dye for coloring their ceremonial Piki cornbread. The young leaves are delicious raw or steamed. The 4-6' plants produce beautiful black seeds that are nutritious and easy to process for eating. Hopi Red Dye is also a popular variety for flower bouquets. åÊ
