Quinoa Seeds - Oro de Valle

(Chenopodium quinoa) Annual. 100 days. 

Growing your own protein is a very exciting thing and Oro de Valle Quinoa provides that satisfaction! Grains typically like growing in cool and dry summer conditions, but this variety has adapted to handle some moisture. Oro de Valle Quinoa's golden orange seed heads are looser than other quinoa varieties, which helps in preventing mold in wet conditions. Quinoa can also be grown for its ornamental worth, standing tall amongst cosmos and poppies.
