'Red Faro' Quinoa
(Chenopodium quinoa)

100 days — 'Red Faro' reaches about five feet in height and produces attractive, reddish-pink foliage with cream-colored seed heads.  Along being a highly productive, it is ornamental and is a good choice for the back of flowerbeds.

Originally from Northern Chile, 'Red Faro' quinoa does well in the U.S. Our stock was grown in the Coastal Mountain Range of Oregon's Southern Willamette Valley on the Certified Organic farm of one of our growers, Alan Adesse.

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is an ancient cultivated plant. Its use dates back to at least the Incan civilization. Although it is grown and used primarily as a grain, it is not in the grass family, and therefore not a true grain. It is actually more closely related to beets and spinach. The seeds, therefore, are high in protein and contain no gluten. With an increase in awareness about gluten allergies or sensitivities and diseases such as celiac disease, interest in quinoa is on the rise.

Used as a grain, the flavor of quinoa can range from bland to nutty and delicious.  Lightly roasting before cooking enhances the flavor.  According to the USDA's Nutrition Database, quinoa contains a nearly perfect protein for human consumption. It actually is a good substitute for meat as a source for dietary protein. It is also a good source for calcium and iron. Click here for a simple quinoa side dish recipe.
