Sandia Mountain Range - Photo by Raychel Sanner

FUN FACT: We are named Sandia Seed after the Sandia mountains in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Sandía means watermelon in Spanish. The mountains were named for their beautiful pink color at sunset when the sun reflects light off the granite rocks. The Sandias are an iconic part of the Albuquerque skyline and a great place to get outdoors. In the foothills at their base there are amazing hikes, trail running, and it’s our favorite place to mountain bike ride.

 

Happy growing!
