Sunflower & sunflower seeds

The sunflower belongs to the genus Helianthus in the daisy family. The annual flower grows to heights of between one and three metres. The flower colours range from typical yellow to orange and even multicoloured. The flowering time is between June and September. Harvesting begins in mid-September, when the sunflower's leaves die and the flower petals come off. This is done with the help of special combine harvesters. After harvesting, the sunflower seeds usually need to be redried.

Sunflowers thrive in bright and warm locations with sufficient water. The high oleic sunflower is a variety of sunflower with a particularly high oleic acid content of between 80 and 90 %. The origin lies in a mutant found in Russia, from which the High-Oleic (HO) sunflower was bred in a conventional way. This is not genetic manipulation.

The name "sunflower" comes from the fact that the flower always aligns both its leaves and its blossom to the position of the sun.
