Cherry Vanilla organic quinoa seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! This variety is so attractive in the garden with its pink and cream coloured seed heads. It bears the whitest seeds off all our varieties. Cherry Vanilla has particularly tasty baby leaves, so it is an outstanding baby salad green choice. The tall plants bear copious decorative flower clusters followed by huge quantities of tiny edible seeds. To harvest quinoa seeds, cut the seed heads about 60cm (24″) down the stem and gather them for drying in small bundles. Dry the bundles indoors, out of direct sunlight. Then bash the bundles inside paper yard waste bags, and the seeds will fall out. It is then easy to separate the dense seeds from the light chaff.
