Great for snacking! Much work has been done in eastern Europe and Russia to breed black oil seed sunflowers for an alternative to olive oil. Semechki is a heavy cropper of big plump black seeds rich in oils- great for people interested in growing their own oil seeds. 60 Sunflowers can produce as much as 1 liquid quart of sunflower oil. It is also a gorgeous yellow sunflower.
