Brightest Brillant Rainbow Quinoa Blend (Organic, 90-120 Days)


Quinoa is a high protein, nutritious grain that produces large seed heads and young, edible leaves. At maturity this variety includes attractive red, yellow, orange, white, and green seed heads. As a cool weather crop, it grows best in northern areas where daytime temperatures do not exceed 90-95°, above this can prevent seed heads. Seeds should be sown in cool soil, April through May, with soil temperatures at 45-60°. Looks like lambsquarters when it first emerges from the soil so it is best to sow in straight rows, keep well weeded, and thin 8-18” apart when the seedlings are 6” high. Grows 4-6’ tall, in well drained, rich soil. After harvesting the heads, wash a few times to remove the bittter saponin coating that covers the seeds. Cook like rice to enjoy a delicious gluten-free nutritional powerhouse! Germs 3-7 days
