Review:

I LOVE this quinoa. It's easy to grow, even with this hot, dry summer we've been having. The colors are gorgeous! I haven't harvested any yet, but the flower heads are loaded! I agree with the other review - when the plants are young and just starting to set flowers, aphids will come in droves. Just be diligent about spraying them off with water every day. After a few weeks, they seem to go away. My plants are easily reaching 5-6 ft tall, and still growing. They are very top heavy, and I've had to tie some to sticks to keep them upright. Will update on the harvest when it gets here.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
