Brightest Brilliant Rainbow, ORGANIC

Chenopodium quinoa

Stately plants with edible leaves and protein rich seeds. Quinoa is at home on dry mountain tops in South America where the nights stay cool, so expect variable seed production if evenings are too warm. This Frank Morton selection is full of brilliant colors- pink, orange, yellow, green, and more!

Plants grow best in areas with temperate days and cool evenings. High temperatures potentially interrupt pollination which disrupts seed formation. Direct seed in spring after danger of frost. Regardless of seed production, quinoa is easy to grow for young greens harvested when about 12" high. Plant Seeds: 1/8"deep with 1-2" between seeds in rows 18" apart. Soil Temp: 60-75
