Poppy, Hungarian Blue Breadseed

93% of 100

Annual. A graceful and gorgeous poppy from Hungary, beloved for its tasty seeds. This edible breadseed poppy produces dazzling purple petals that give way to large seed-filled pods. The pods are excellent for arranging, adding unique form to designs. The seeds are light blue with nutty flavor. An annual that easily self sows, we love to plant this poppy in drifts, creating a swaying sea of purple color. Many Hungarian recipes call for poppy seeds, from fillings for rolls and bread. There is even a traditional noodle dish with ground poppy seed topping.
