This buff colored seed variety is the first release from crosses between our ‘Oro de Valle’ and material from the WSU quinoa breeding program. Selected most recently for high yield and stem strength, an important trait combination. We will be testing this for high amylopectin content (like its parent, Oro de Valle), for use as a processing/noodle quinoa. Farm Original Variety!
