Product Description

Poppy Seeds are tiny nutty tasting, blue-gray seeds inside capsules on Papaver somniferum, a yellowish brown opium plant indigenous to the Mediterranean. Poppy Seeds are used to flavor breads, cakes, rolls, and cookies in European and Middle Eastern cooking. In Turkey, they are often ground and used in desserts. In India, the seeds are ground and used to thicken sauces. The seeds are also used in noodle, fish, and vegetable dishes in Jewish, German, and Slavic cooking. These seeds like other dried seeds may germinate under proper conditions. However, herb and spice seeds sold by Frontier are not intended for sprouting purposes and in many cases will not germinate. They also have a high oil content, and although the oil is relatively stable while the seed is intact, refrigeration will slow the oxidation process and prolong the life of the seed.

Smelled weird, tasted like pepper.
Dudeman
Frontier is the company that is usually sold in upscale organic grocery stores, and they're much cheaper buying direct from here.
Brian Rose
I won't be using any poppy seeds again.

Where can you go wrong with these. Very earthy and unwashed. I guess Colorado Spice technically beats these, but the price for these beats them. With the current prices the math comes out to only $5.60 a pound.

Ive used every type of poppy seed for tea from amazon and this is the best one economically and quality wise. Colorado Spice isn't bad but these are much better.

For anyone who does any cooking that involves poppy seeds, it makes total sense to buy in semi-bulk.

For the cost of two pounds of these high quality Frontier seeds, you might be able to buy a few ounces (2-3 bottles) from your local grocery store.

There are many great recipes from Eastern Europe that use lots and lots of these tasty seeds. I haven't bothered trying to buy in super-bulk yet, like the 70 lbs bags! But I might in the near future :)

I should offer a warning to people who are subjected to random urinalyses: at work, in the military or on probation: some of the recipes that call for a large amounts of poppy seeds (like Hungarian "Beiglis") can cause a positive result for opiate use.

I run these tests for people in my department and for some employees, it can cause serious problems, so please be careful! I unofficially tested myself after eating a Czech Kolache, and my pee was positive for opiates for four days!! (using the OPI2000 indicator kit)

Probably best not to bring these dishes in to work and share them with your co-workers! They covered this on Myth-Busters I heard, and its absolutely true.

These are 100% pure Papaver somniferum seeds. As another reviewer notes they are unwashed and very earthy, great for just about any use from muffins, cakes or tea. They come in two 1 pound foil lined bags that preserve freshness. Two pounds for $11 can't be beat!

The cleanest seeds ever. Definitely Turkish. A strange white and grey color. Smelled weird, tasted like pepper. Threw them away, wouldn't use them. Totally sucked. Worthless.
UPDATE-Looked at frontier's website and in there customers reviews they clearly state "we do not wash our seeds", but they also add in a later reply "We do however steam treat for food sanitation purposes". That explains why they taste like pepper. At least they admit to this, so I give them credit for honesty.

They're unwashed and are the best price around. Frontier is the company that is usually sold in upscale organic grocery stores, and they're much cheaper buying direct from here.

These seeds are also viable- they have slow germination rate, but with 10,000 seeds you can have a 10% germination rate and still get 1,000 plants! Just seed by broadcasting in the garden, and you'll get a number of beautiful poppy flowers a few months later.

These poppy seeds were washed and had very little natural oil on them like they were advertised. I will not buy any more.
