Chenopodium quinoa

Quinoa
#416 Temuco
Ex Koanga. We have previously misspelled this as Temuka. The correct spelling “Temuco” is the name of the Chilean town of origin. This variety comes from an isolated coastal population in lowland central Chile at similar latitude to NZ. It is adapted for growing at sea level and is also less bitter than other Quinoa varieties, needing less rinsing.
