Sunflower Approximately 1 heaping tablespoon per packet
Titan – Mammoth-type sunflower that typically grows 12 feet or more tall and has large, black-and-white striped edible seeds. Yellow-rayed, single-headed flowers. A good type for eating seeds for humans – my chickens don’t like it – I think the seed is too large for them.
