Peshawar Poppy Organic Seeds


Family:  Poppy (Papaveraceae)

Papaver somniferum var. album 

Generally fall-sown in Zones 6 to 9 and spring-sown in colder zones

Cultivar from Persia flowers early and makes large pods.  Traditional usage (TWM): analgesic.  Spread seed on fast-draining soil in fall or very early spring.  For best results, plan the planting of poppies so that they germinate and grow during cool, moist weather and flower and make seed during hot, dry weather.  It takes some years of experimentation to figure out how to do this in the various temperate zones.  Those in southern Oregon strew the seed with the first fall rains and finish seed harvest in June.  Plant prefers full sun and highly nitrogenous, fast-draining soil of neutral pH.

Packet contains 300 seeds
