Poppy, Peshawar (Papaver somniferum var. album), packet of 100 seeds, organic

Family:  Poppy (Papaveraceae)
Cultivar from Persia flowers early and makes large pods.  High alkaloid cultivar.  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.
Organically grown 100 seeds/pkt.

Note:  Planting and raising up poppies requires the skill and/or luck of knowing when, where and how to plant them.  In the midwest and east I think it probably works best to hit the first spring rains after the last  frost.  It is common to get a lot of reprod from seed that drops during harvest--this is often the most successful method of dissemination.  Poppy cultivation works best when you know how to read the weather.  Timing maturation to occur during hot/dry spells is the best way to go.
