Russian Mammoth Sunflower Seeds. Also known as Large Russian Sunflower, this old variety was introduced from Russia prior to 1870. In those days it was extensively planted for feeding poultry and horses. The large stalks were also used as fuel in areas that did not have many trees. According to the 1891 D. M. Ferry & Co. Seed catalog, "This is much superior to the common sort, as it forms a single, large flower, and the seeds are larger and richer in oil." The large seeds are one of the best for snacking. Ht: 10’ or more.
Russian Mammoth Sunflower Seeds have 30 seeds per packet.
