Is it ok to ask questions on this site about the history of cultivation of a certain plant? If not, is there any other SE website more appropriate for that?

The question I have in mind is: "How did amaranths arrive into ancient Greece", since they are from America (Aztecs)?

  • Also, Amaranthus blitum, eg, is indigeneous to the Mediterranean region, and has been consumed as food since ancient times.

Although there exists a dedicated History of science and mathematics SE site, the math or stats sites sometimes have questions about the history of a symbol, of a theorem. Those are quite interesting, to grow connections, rise interest. While I am not a high-level gardener, I believe such questions could be appropriate, and could be better by linking to other questions related to that plant.
