This triple-duty plant just keeps giving! Cherry Vanilla Quinoa explodes with pink and cream-colored flower heads that produce the high-protein grain. But did you know you can eat the spinach-like greens, too? Even if you don’t want to harvest the seed heads, the stunning plants are worth planting just for looks. 90-120 days to maturity; plants are 3-5 ft. tall.
Each packet contains approximately 150 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
For greens: Plant seeds 1-in. apart and harvest the whole plant when it reaches 6-8 in. tall.
For seeds/grain: Plant 12-14 in. apart and let flowers go to seed. Hotter summer temps may inhibit seed formation.
