Plant: After last frost

Chenopodium quinoa

150 seeds/pack   |   150 days   |   Heirloom

Very tall growth to 10 feet. Slender and branching. Day length-sensitive. This variety will not flower and produce seed until the hours of light wane in the fall. At our latitude in Northern CA this was in late October. This variety would probably do best in a climate that usually has a long growing season and few fall rains. Brilliant yellow seeds! Be sure to rinse well to remove the bitter saponins before eating.
