Organic Rainbow Quinoa HEIRLOOM Yes, quinoa! Easy to grow and impressively vigorous, it's 5 to 6 foot spires of green leaves turn gorgeously matte hues of russet, burgundy and ochre as the grains mature, making an impressive hedgerow of color. Closely related to lambsquarters, initial weedings of quinoa can be tricky. The good news is, just like lambsquarters, quinoa is truly not picky when it comes to soil though, like most plants, richer soil will grow taller, more robust plants. Harvest the grains once the seedheads begin to dry by cutting the entire uppermost stalk & threshing once they are completely dry. In hot years, like 2015, your quinoa will grow brilliantly but the seeds may not set in the heat.

The quinoa grew well-we just didn’t have the skills to harvest it correctly.
