Quinoa
'Multi-Hued'

This easy to grow variety is perfect for the first time Quinoanian! A shorter season variety that is perfect for cool Northern climates as well as hotter inland climates! Growing 5-6’ tall, these slender plants produce chubby club-like flower clusters in Summer ranging in color from yellow to vivid red to mauve and all the colors in between. Space plants 1’ apart and provide excellent drainage and protection from strong winds. Seeds are ready for harvest in the Fall when they have hardened. Fully dried and de-chaffed seeds can last 6 months or more! The tasty leaves can be eaten at any time. Prepare them as you would spinach.
