Paul's QUINOA SEEDS
Quinoa is a plant that thrives at extremely high altitudes in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. It was already cultivated thousands of years ago by the legendary Incas. The name ‘Quinoa’ comes from the Quechua language, the original language of the Incas. The Incas boiled Quinoa like rice and considered Quinoa as ‘sacred food’.
