Cora's sunflower, she lives on a farm..they added a little fertilizer!!
I did find out from her Dad, Jim, that there are two types of Sunflowers, the oil ones which are usually black seeded ones used for oil and birdseed, and confectionery ones..these are the ones that we eat as a snack or use in baking, they are usually dark grey with a white stripe. Jim says that he is sure that Cora's sunflowers are of the confectionery type. What ever type they are they were very tall and very healthy..and obviously a great success:)
