Abstract: A study was conducted to optimize the time of sowing and stage of harvest of red amaranth during winter season to obtain higher yield without loss of palatability. It was observed that in November sowing, highest palatability (1.59) was achieved when harvested at 15 DAS. Harvesting at 20 days after sowing (DAS) was found to be suitable for November sowing considering economic yield as well as palatability. In December sowing had moderate palatability with leaf-stem ration 1.38. On the other hand, in January sowing when harvested at 30 DAS expressed acceptable leaf-stem ration (1.71). Therefore, considering yield and optimum palatability, harvesting of the crop should be done at 25 DAS in December sowing and 30 DAS in January sowing.
