Product Description - Organic Green & Red Amaranthus Seeds (Renu Sree Cheera) - Open Pollinated

Renu Sree Cheera (Green and Red Spinach) is an annual or perennial climbing herb with red or green vines and leaves. The thick, fleshy leaves have a pointed tip and are alternately arranged along with the plant. Spinach, both green and red, is a leafy vine native to tropical Asia that is widely cultivated in Asia and Africa. Due to the slightly mucilaginous nature of the leaves, it is delicious when sauteed or added to soups and stir-fries.

Planting and care of green and red spinach

 Sowing green and red spinach

  •  Sow the first crop in early spring and the second crop in late summer for a fall crop.
  • Sow in a sunny location with fair, well-worked soil.
  • Sow seeds uniformly in grow bags and cover with 12 inches of fine soil. Firm softly and gently water.
  • Seedlings emerge between 7 and 14 days after planting, depending on the soil and weather conditions.
  • Gradually thin seedlings to 6 inches apart, beginning when they are around 1-2 inches tall. Baby leaf spinach should not be thinned.

Growing green and red spinach

  • Maintain weed control during the growing season. Weeds compete for water, space, and nutrients with plants; therefore, they monitor them by cultivating frequently or using mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. When weeding, avoid disturbing the soil around the plants, as spinach is a shallow-rooted plant.
  • Maintain adequate watering during dry periods to ensure rapid, uninterrupted development. During the growing season, plants need approximately 1 to 12 inches of rain each week. Utilize a rain gauge to determine if additional water is required. It is preferable to use a drip or trickle irrigation system that delivers water at low pressure to the soil level. If you use overhead sprinklers, water early in the day to allow the vegetation to dry before evening helps prevent disease problems. Maintain moist but not saturated soil.
  • Keep an eye out for rodents and diseases.

Harvesting green and red spinach

  • Harvest the outer leaves when they reach a length of 3 inches.
  • Snip baby leaves as required once they reach around 2 inches in length.
  • When the weather warms up, and seed stalks begin to grow, immediately harvest the entire plant.
  • Leaves may be sautéed or steamed in addition to being consumed fresh.
  • Wash, dry, and refrigerate in a perforated plastic bag for up to a week.
