(Chinese spinach) Callaloo is a popular Caribbean dish made from different leafy plants depending on local custom. In Jamaica and in Guyana the preferred leaf is from the amaranth. The association between the dish and amaranth is so strong that the plant itself is often called “callaloo”. The young leaves are sweet and slightly tangy to the taste and are used like spinach in soups, salads and in meat and fish dishes. Very easy to grow. Sow direct in the garden in spring. 60 days.
