If you are thinking of consuming chia seeds, I suggest you to opt for Halvia. I had made experiments to compare Greexxxxxx and Halvia chia seeds. When I tried to plant the Greexxxxxx chia seeds, most of them were not growing at all. On the other hand, almost all of Halvia chia seeds were growing. I repeated the same experiment after few months. Halvia shown a consistent result as my first test. I attached here photos taken during experiments. Greexxxxxx VS Halvia chia seeds.
