Poppy, Elka White Breadseed

  • $4.00

Description

Papaver somniferum

Slovakian heirloom with massive seedheads and oil-rich, snow-white seeds.

Showy pale lavender blooms top these 3-4' tall plants that feed oodles of bees before swelling into fat seedpods that house loads of light-colored seeds that can be used in baking. Seeds are sweeter, nuttier, and oilier than darker varieties. Plus, if they get stuck in your teeth, no one can see them because they're white! So eat up!

200 seeds.

Seeds grown by Thompson Creek Farm in Newman Lake, Washington.

Directions: Direct seed in fall or late winter. Or, keep seeds in wet sand in fridge for at least one month before planting. Poppies reseed.
