Quinoa, the ancient health grain from the Andes has been adapted to also set seeds in our climate. Our variety of Quinoa has been selected in Portugal for some years already and has shown to adapt well to local conditions. The open pollinated variety yields nutritious seeds and due to the growth habit is easy to manage. This variety is especially suited for people wishing to grow their own grain, or for small farmers looking for an additional crop for their markets. The seeds contain saponins, which means that the seeds have to be washed before use, but also that birds and other pests are less interested to eat your crop.
