About Poppy Seeds - The Giant

Papaver somniferum

Seed Type Open Pollinated

This variety of Poppy somniferum giganteum seeds, known as The Giant is the variety of poppy most often cultivated for culinary use and baking. The somniferum poppy is prized for the amount of seed produced by individual pods, suitable for baking and making oils. However, this Poppy's culinary uses are overshadowed by the spectacular blooms it produces! The somniferum variety of Poppy Seeds dazzles in your garden with a large, double petaled head, often referred to as a "peony flowered" poppy because of the fullness of the bloom.
