Quinoa is a seed, not a fruit. "It is a seed of the goosefoot plant. The seeds are small, flat and oval, resembling a mix of sesame seed and millet.

This gives the cooked grain a circular shape,” said Anne VanBeber, Ph.D., R.D., L.D., associate professor and chairman of the nutritional sciences department at Texas Christian University. MORE
