Quinoa seeds are high in protein, have a nutty flavor and tender texture, and can be steamed like rice. Young quinoa greens can be used like spinach. Cherry Vanilla quinoa produces masses of beautifully ornamental cream and pink seed heads that produce bright white seeds on tall, slender 4-6 foot plants. Organically grown.
Growing Cherry Vanilla Quinoa Seeds
How to Plant Quinoa: Direct sow quinoa seeds into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost (and the soil has fully warmed) in groups of 4 seeds spaced 12-18 in. apart. Thin to the strongest plant. Or, scatter seed over ground that has had the top 1 in. of soil loosened. Rake seed in lightly, walk over area to firm soil. Keep moist until germination. Quinoa seed is easy to germinate provided the soil is warm. Seed can also be started indoors in cell packs or 2 in. containers. Kept at 65-75°F., germination is in 7-14 days.
