An Ancient African Supergrain
Fonio is one of Africa’s oldest cultivated cereal crops, and is becoming a popular alternative to oats, rice, quinoa, and corn in the Western diet. Fast-growing, resistant to drought conditions, and highly adaptable to climate change, fonio is an environmentally friendly (and delicious) solution to producing nutritious food for all.
What sets fonio apart from other supergrains?
• Grows in all kinds of soil (even nutrient-poor)
• Cultivated without fertilizers or pesticides
• Requires very little water
• 3-4 months from seed to harvest
