Abstract
A nutritious food crop from the Andes named Quinoa, Inca wheat, or Little Rice, has been acclimatized and grown successfully on a small scale in Kenya. It is claimed to be the food crop which thrives at greater altitudes than any other, that it can withstand frost, and will yield a return under conditions so dry as to prohibit most crops from growing. The plant is Chenopodium quinoa. In these notes the Peruvian custom of referring both to the crop and the grain as quinua is used.
