Papaver somniferum - Opium Poppy Seeds


Click to enlargeThe pharmacological significance of this plant has been recognized since at least 1600 b.c. It was likely used as a euphoriant in the late Minoan civilization, and ancient Egyptians, Persians and Greeks all understood it to be a "destroyer of grief" and pain. The immature flower pods from this species exude a resin rich in opiate alkaloids.

This variety, Bea's Choice, comes direct from the personal garden of an admired grower and poppy connoisseur who's cultivated many a poppy. The lineage is a co-mingling of choice "blood lines" from India, Turkey and Persia. Flower colors vary but deep scarlets and pinks predominate. 10 gram seed packet.
