  • Amaranthus plants are fast-growing and can be harvested multiple times throughout the growing season, providing a continuous supply of fresh leaves for consumption.
  • It is well-adapted to hot climates and thrives in warm weather, making it an ideal choice for cultivation in tropical and subtropical regions.
  • Both the leaves and tender stems of Terere are edible and can be consumed raw in salads, sautéed, steamed, or added to soups, stews, and stir-fries.

Application

  • Start Terere seeds indoors in seed trays or sow them directly into well-prepared soil once the danger of frost has passed. Keep the soil consistently moist until seedlings emerge.
  • Thin out seedlings to provide adequate spacing between plants, typically 6-12 inches apart, to allow for proper growth and development.
  • Plant Terere in fertile, well-drained soil and provide regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist. Mulch around the plants to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.
