Quinoa, Apellewa (Organic)
Chenopodium quinoa. 80-95 days.
The earliest maturing quinoa we have ever grown, or heard of for that matter. Even with such early ripening, Apellewa produces great yields of large, mostly white seeds. We might be biased because it is our most recent amazing quinoa find, but we really were impressed! Slightly variable, mostly cream-gold and green plants with the occasional pink to red-toned standout. Plants grow 4-6′ tall. Our planting stock came from Bountiful Gardens in Willits, California, just prior to their closing. We have received so many good varieties from them over the years were saddened to see them go. Luckily, the seed lives on.
