Chenopodiaceae query:  This being the week of chenopodiaceae I would like to know if Chenopodium quinoa is seen anywhere in India. I did read they are researched upon in NBRI Lucknow


Your query seems to have solved my problem. In Delhi, chenopodium album is a winter weed mostly flowering between January to mid March, mostly as weed of cultivation, sometimes roadsides. We find a summer form that appears in April and continues in summer, much taller and more or less cut leaves, harder somewhat 4-angled branches. I have a feeling that this may be Chenopoium quinoa. I will upload it in this week.
