Is there a variety of amaranth that could be more suitable for growing in the cooler Months in the tropics?

Further to yesterday's advice. You could go on the internet and spends hours trying to find your answer. I have never seen it or grown it. Best to ask some flowering society or agricultural dept. From my knowledge and experience most plants need a certain temperature range to germinate and then temperature range/climate to grow. That is why some plants are recommended to grow in spring in some climates and other climates it might be summer or winter.
