General: Chia's flowers form on spikes that resemble wheat, on stalks that can grow up to five feet tall. Very drought-tolerant. They benefit from regular watering until they're established, but after that may need little to no additional watering, as they tend to adjust to all sorts of conditions.
Culinary Uses: Not only are chia seeds edible, they are a rich source of many nutrients. They are high in protein, antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. They offer five times the calcium available from milk, and the enzymes in the seeds may aid digestion.
