The best way is to test the seeds by taste and appearance. If the inside of the seed looks green or empty then it is not ripe. The seeds ripen from the outside of the head to the center. The petals will be shriveled, the head down-turned and yellow on the back. Sometimes the seeds - especially those in the middle - do not ever fill properly. When ripe, it is easier to rub the seed loose from the head. The seed color usually darkens also.
Reproduction takes place in the head of the sunflower!!!
The head of a sunflower will naturally droop as it forms seeds. If your sunflower is drooping before it has even formed a head, it likely needs more water.
you know when a apple is ripe when it is in full color and is not mushy.
you know if it is ripe when it goes the right colour
=They ripe in i don't know season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=
Up to 1,000 seeds can be produced from one sunflower head. Some may produce more or less depending on the exact sunflower.
Yes, when a sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is in bloom, the flowers are really in the dark middle. As the bracts (what we call petals) fade, the seeds are growing in that middle. When the seeds are ripe and you, or a bird, can eat them, the head will be drooping towards the ground where either you can collect them, or the seeds will fall to the ground for next year's display.
if the orange smells juicy than it is ripe
During day the sunflower moves its head i.e. the flower according to the movement of sun. during night it drops down. only living things show movement.
it looks like sun hence it is called as sunflower its head also follows the sun on its course during the day.zaf.
You do not.
When the birds start eating them like crazy, they are ripe.
headAnswer:First, the "Sunflower" is native to the Americas.The sunflower is comprised of many smaller flowers very close together, forming what is known as florets. These florets as a whole is called the head or flower of the sunflower. The florets, spiral forming the flower/head and can grow to as large as 15" (381mm) in diameter and up to 15 feet (4.57M) tall.
It is 2-3 pounds when ripe.
YES! They have a lot of nectar, because the "head" of a sunflower is made up of 4,000 tiny flowers.
when it is yellow
after pollination, a sunflowers head turns to the north.
Sunflower oil is made from the oil that is contained in the flower-head seeds of the sunflower. Very high pressure is applied to the seeds to extract the oil.
Not necessarily. While a smaller than average head will definitely have smaller seeds, a larger than average head will simply have more seeds of the typical size. There is an upper limit on how large sunflower seeds can be (the limit depends on the breed of sunflower).
Ripe, as in food ripe means it is ready to pluck off the tree and eat. Like peaches, they have to be ripe. Bananas can be overripe though. In other terms I don't know another definition for ripe other than that...
You Take the seeds out :)
Sunflower seeds are dispersed primarily by gravity. The head dies and dries up, causing the seeds to fall out.
Varys in size. When ripe there deep green in color and feels thick when squeezed.
The guava is usually green before maturity, but becomes yellow, maroon, or green when ripe.
When it's ripe it will smell really nice. That's the best way to tell.
