Beautiful pink and cream heads top these nutritionally dense plants. Protein-packed white seeds are easily hand harvested then dried to be used like grain. Thick juicy leaves are perfect raw in salads and have a salty spinach-like flavour when cooked. Plant reach 1.5 m. in height and prefer sun and heat— a great source of mid-summer greens. This ancient plant comes from the Andes of South America and was domesticated over 3,000 years ago.
