Amaranthus paniculatus Linn. PRINCE'S FEATHER. RED AMARANTH. North America and naturalized in the Orient. This plant is extensively cultivated in India for its seed which is ground into flour. It is very productive. Roxburgh  says it will bear half a pound of floury, nutritious seed on a square yard of ground. Titford  says it forms an excellent pot-herb in Jamaica when boiled, exactly resembling spinach.
