    Quinoa flowering.

    Quinoa (pronounced /ˈkinwɑ/ KEEN-wah or /ˈkinoʊə/ KEE-no-uh, Spanish quinua, from Quechua kinwa) is a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium) grown as a crop primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal as it is not a grass. Its leaves are also eaten as a leaf vegetable, much like amaranth, but the commercial availability of quinoa greens is currently limited.

      I love this picture - it's so amazing that you are growing Quinoa! I wish we had the right climate here in Miami, I would grow tons of it.

      I am using your photo in an article I've written about Quinoa, I will post the link here when it's up. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

      Am surprised Quinoa wont grow in Miami. Is it too humid where you are?
