Seeds

We are tremendously excited about this very short, early variety.

Small 3' plants produce medium-large yields of very large seeds-the largest seeds of any variety we have been able to grow here in California.

Pale pink to cream seedheads yield mostly pale tan seed with apricot tinge. Nice flavor. Our exclusive.

BOTANICAL NAME : Chenopodium quinoa

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Sow in flats on 1" centers shortly before last frost. May not germinate well in hot weather. Transplant when second set of leaves appear to 12" centers in garden. Be careful not to overly disturb roots when transplanting. Needs well-drained, fertile soil and prefers cool weather. Water sparingly. The bitter soapy seed coating must be washed off before eating-run seeds through blender, changing water until it no longer foams. Seed our handout for more info.

Fabulous high altitude success
on 12/29/14 by Lyn Crenshaw in CO

Apellewa performed perfectly in my garden. I am at 8500 feet in Southern Colorado. We have lots of big and steady wind here and the smaller plants are much better than tall ones. Very pretty and loaded with seeds by August. I just left it on the plants in the ground until late September during which we have several good overnight frosts
