Description How to Grow Delivery
Callaloo is a Caribbean spinach which not only tastes fabulous but looks good too. These Amaranthus species are fast and easy growing greens. Plants will exhibit varied characteristics, some developing coloured leaves in green, yellow, and red shades. In late summer they all produce tall, green flower-spikes which develop into interesting seed heads. Bring a bit of the West Indies into your garden and mash up a dish of Jamaican Callaloo cooked with tomatoes, garlic, and chillies! Height: 120cm (4’). Spread: 60cm (2’).
