Quilquina (Papalo) (Porophyllum ruderale) packet of 30 seeds, organic


Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Annual, 90 days to harvest.

(Bolivian Coriander, Killi, Papaloquelite)  Native to South America, this smooth-leaved plant makes a rounded, multistemmed bush to 3 feet.  The plant remains in vegetative stage for a long time before going to flower, at which point if forms multiple upright buds that eventually open up to reveal a perfectly round ball of fluff, like a little moon.  The leaves may be harvested as needed, a strangely tasty addition to summer salads or salsas.  Traditional usage:  appetite-inducing, digestive.  Plant prefers sun and regular garden soils.  Sow the small, needle-like seeds on surface, barely cover, tamp well and keep warm and in the light until germination.  Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.
