This Amaranthus caudatus has elongated red flowers that hang to the ground. Grow mostly as a ornamental plant, the foliage is edible. it blooms all summer long and grows to 36’. Its seeds are smaller than Amarnathus hypochondriacus, Amaranth, which is traditionally cultivated for agricultural seed production for its larger seed size. The red color of the inflorescences is due to a high content of betacyanins, as in the related species known as "Hopi red dye" amaranth. Also known as Pendant Amaranth, Tassel Flower, Velvet Flower, Foxtail Amaranth and Quilete. Tags: Color: Red, Heritage: Heirloom.

Many parts of the plants, including the leaves and seeds, are edible, and are frequently used as a source of food in India and South America where it is the most important Andean species of Amaranthus, known as kiwicha. This species, as with many other of the amaranths, are originally from the American tropics. The exact origin is unknown, as A. caudatus is believed to be a wild Amaranthus hybridus aggregate.
