Standfast Sunflower (out of stock)

Selected in Maine by Will Bonsall for large edible seeds. This is the one you want for eating! These plants are a consistent size at around 5-6 feet, with one large head atop a sturdy stalk.

Teff - Annapolis Seeds
Teff (out of stock)

The smallest cereal grain. Traditionally grown in East Africa, especially Ethiopia where it's fermented into injera flatbread. We began growing it as an experiment the past few years, and learned it also does well in Nova Scotia! Extremely tolerant of drought and poor soil, it thrived during the 2016 drought with no extra water. Resembling a wild grass, the clumping plants were ready to harvest in August from early June transplants. I'm still experimenting with how best to grow and harvest it, you can too! 200+ seeds

Four Star Explorers Mix Amaranth - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Four Star Explorers Mix Amaranth
Price: $3.50

I was so impressed by this amaranth while visiting Dan Jason and Salt Spring Seeds that I had to bring some back to grow! Large yields of seed harvested from brilliant red plants. The seeds are a mix of black, brown and white, and are among the tastiest and best textured that I’ve ever eaten. Originally from a diverse mix of amaranth varieties crossed and grown together by Frank Morton. Plants display a lot of diversity. Several hundred seeds

Mennonite Sorghum - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Mennonite Sorghum
Price: $3.50

I've been experimenting with different varieties of sorghum for a few years now, and for many seasons Mennonite was my favourite. After discovering Ba-Ye-Qi sorghum last year, it's no longer my go-to variety for grain production (Ba-Ye-Qi has it beat for earliness), but it's still a great dual-purpose variety for syrup and grain (if started early).

The plants look a lot like tall stalks of corn, only rather than producing a tassel on top they each bear a head of grain. In addition to the grain (which is gluten-free) the juice from the mature stalks is sweet and can be pressed and boiled into syrup. I enjoy just chewing on the stalks in the garden like sugar cane. 100+ seeds (1.5 grams)

Peredovik Oilseed Sunflower - Annapolis Seeds
Peredovik Oilseed Sunflower
Price: $3.50

Although a native North American crop, much work has been done in eastern Europe and Russia to breed black oilseed sunflowers for an alternative to olive oil. Peredovik is a heavy cropper of plump black seeds rich in oils. Great for people interested in growing their own oilseeds or wild bird/poultry feed. It is also a gorgeous yellow sunflower, 3-4 feet tall primarily, with one single large head per plant. Approx. 50 seeds
