Will it grow? Store Bought Quinoa Edition

To recap: I sprinkled some Earthly Choice Premium Quinoa grains in our X-Garden and wondered Will It Grow? The answer:

Why yes it does! Who knew?

Quinoa seeds are tiny, so 14oz of them is a huge amount. That makes the seeds both easy to find (check your grocery store, we got ours at Giant) and dirt cheap.

Time will tell if they actually grow into anything substantial. But they definitely germinated.


  1. Wow! I was skeptical. Thanks for the update. At the very least, the sprouts may taste good in salads...?

  2. @mkirk - That's a good point. Perhaps as thin these guys I can try harvesting some for spouts (not really sure it works that way, but how much harm could I cause?).

  3. Hmmm, apparently folks do sprout quinoa. Interesting.
