"Our favorite quinoa because of its unique history and excellent performance here in the Willamette Valley. Golden orange seeds. 4-5′ tall plants with seed heads that turn vivid orange when ripe. High yielding compared to other quinoa grown in low elevations. Short season. Open seed heads shed late season damp weather. Collected in southern Chile and named after quinoa collector and advocate David Cusack, who was murdered in Bolivia in 1984. There is anecdotal evidence that he was murdered by “business interests” that felt threatened by the solidarity amongst quinoa-growing campesinos. Others believe he was murdered due to his activism and research surrounding the CIA’s role in the overthrow of Chilean president Salvador Allende. All very mysterious."
