We're really happy to have this superior salad amaranth in our catalogue. Here's what our seed source, the great Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath, Oregon, has to say about it:
"Who ever heard of a Polish amaranth? Regardless, this is a favorite for a vocal contingent of salad growers who say this is the best tasting variety we sell. When we skipped growing it a couple years, we heard howls of frustrated desire. This was sent to us by Wisconsin farmer Richard DeWild."
