Quinoa is an ancient, nutritious food native to the mountains of South America. Seeds can be cooked, roasted, or ground into flour. Young leaves are delicious cooked like spinach. This blend has striking colors of hot pink, burgundy, red, orange, yellow, white, and green. Grows best in climates with moderately warm days (lower than 95°F) and cool nights. Fairly drought tolerant. Deer resistant.
