Sunflower Seeds

Technically, sunflower seeds are the fruits of the sunflower plant (Helianthus annuus) . Seeds are collected from large flower heads of plants with a diameter exceeding 30.5 cm. One head of sunflower can contain up to 2000 seeds. There are two main types of sunflower crops. One type is grown for the seeds you eat, while the other – which is grown most – is grown for oil.
The sunflower seeds you eat are enclosed in an inedible black and white striped shell, which is also called the husk. Those used to extract sunflower oil have hard black shells. These seeds have a mild nutty taste and a firm but delicate texture. They are often fried to enhance the taste, although they can be bought raw.
