    Many experienced tortoise keepers including @ALDABRAMAN have recommended Orchard grass for Aldabras. However, there are various varieties of Orchard grass seeds available , the most widely available of which are listed below:

    1) Quickdraw

    2) Paiute

    3) Potomac

    Kindly advise which one of the above is the most preferable.

    Thank you
