Origin of Quinoa
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is native to South America and has been cultivated as the main food crop since 6000 years ago. Quinoa was already used by the Incas as a field crop. It is able to grow under cold, nutrient-poor and dry conditions. The growth period is about 5-6 months.
Crossbreeding has created quinoa varieties that can grow in European and North American conditions. In the first half of April, quinoa is sown in Europe and the harvest takes place from mid-September.
