Growing Instructions

Soak 2/3 cup of seeds in cool water for 30 minutes-2 hours.

Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain thoroughly.

Keep your Sprouter in a relatively low light location.

Rinse and Drain with cool water again in 8-12 hours. You may Rinse and Drain again 8-12 hours beyond that if you want.

These seeds produce Soaks. They are not intended to grow Roots.

Harvest and eat or Refrigerate your crop.

Sunflowers are best stored in a cool location - we keep ours in a freezer, but a refrigerator works well too. If you plan on storing these for more than 3 months you should use one of these cool locations. Also, Sunflowers are pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself warned =:-}

Dry Hulled Sunflower Seeds await their Soak.

30-60 minutes later... Soaked, Rinsed and Drained. Like we say, we stop right here. The seeds are alive, and are texturally and flavor-wise at their best.You may of course keep going. The worst thing you'll end up with is knowledge.

12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle. Done yet?

12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle. Still sprouting?

12 more hours passed... Note: The brownish tinge is the thin skin around the seeds. Would that you where to "peel" them - you would see this:

Family: Compositae
Genus: Helianthus
Species: annuus
Cultivar: Unnamed
