« For Your Moody Mares | Main | Is Your Chia Seed Buggy? »


I have some Tarahumara chia seeds that you sent me last year. They do seem to be a little smaller than chia seeds. I'll try to publish a macro image comparing the two.

Some mature seeds are now harvestable. My impression is that S. tiliifolia has slightly smaller seeds than S. hispanica, though.

Several volunteer Salvia tiliifolia have been flowering for about a week, so they seem likely to be able to produce mature seed in the remaining frost-free month. Tarahumara chia is drought tolerant and does have the potential to become a weed but is not particularly aggressive: I have about 6 volunteer plants this year from what would have been hundreds of seeds dropped by about 10 plants last year.
