Giant Greystripe Sunflower
Helianthus annuus

Along with being huge plants with beautiful, giant flower heads, 'Giant Greystripe' sunflower produces loads of seeds that are the large, edible snacking-type. They are tasty eaten raw or roasted and lightly salted. Perfect for snacking in the shell, or the meats make a nice addition to bread, rolls, or as a topping to green salads. Additionally, the seeds can be used as a high protein bird or chicken feed, or you can leave the plants standing in your gardens in the fall to provide the migratory birds passing through your area a much needed, high protein meal along their journey. Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 30 seeds.
Biggest I've ever seen.
Perfect germ, of course, indifferent to weather (while growing), no pest or disease (while growing) problems at all (even the deer won't touch them). Far larger than advertised; 10-11 ft and nicely uniform, stalks more like trunks, very large heads. Once they start to ripen, however, they seem to be prone to mold and rot; I don't remember applying any Bordeaux to them, so that might be my fault (they were going so well on their own!) Despite losses, I still have an impressive harvest and will be planting them again (and paying more attention to them).

They grew over 10 feet tall. Half of the flowers produced a beautiful white seed and the other half produced grey striped seeds. Tasty seeds. The bugs loved them as well as the birds and the humans. =)

Gorgeous and Large
They grew very tall and think, and we harvested most heads and then broke them apart to dry them out quickly. We had a lovely harvest.
