Answer: I think i read in a book by Harold Tietze (an Australian) that over three days he ate 3 papaya including the black seeds. It gave him a tremendous stomach pain... however a wart fell off his hand.I usually eat all of the white seeds, if the seeds are black i eat a few table spoons because they are very spicy. I blend them with the papaya in a smoothie with greens and banana.I eat the skin too if it is unblemished and mature green papaya as well.I have a recipe for papaya ginger beer here: http://www.rejoiceinlife.com/recipes/papayaBeer.phpRecently i have been having a papaya shoothy every day and my fibromyalgia symptoms have disappeared. I am not sure if that is associated with the papaya or not.I am wondering how many black seeds i could eat?
Answer: Online: Amazon (usually 3rd-party sellers) have 5lb for $12.2. eBay sellers 5lb start at $14.99. Re-check for current prices. Other websites have them as well.
Locally: Any health food store (Whole Foods, etc) with a bulk section should have wheat seeds.
It is for making food, but buy it and then look online for ways to sprout them: soak for 8-12 hours and then remove water, rinse the seeds and remove water from the rinse, wait 12 hours and then place in planter and cover it. Every 24hr water and put back the cover so it is dark inside. Eventually grass lifts the cover, and that is when you remove it so it has some light and turns green. It takes 8 days.
Answer: Basically seeds have adaptations that ensure they are spread(normally away from the parent plant).
This is a survival mechanism in order to ensure that the specieswont die out if conditions become unfavourable, this also helps toextend the range of the plant.
Seeds evolved various mechanisms in order to achieve this:
Burs to catch on the fur of animals, edible fruit to ensure thefruit and seeds are eaten by animals (and then excreted a distanceaway), wings in order to catch gentle breezes, some are buoyant anddistributed by water and finally some are "explosively" hurled awayfrom the parent plant.
Answer: Seeds are dispersed in several different ways, depending on the species of plant. Many seeds are scattered by the wind, (dandilion seeds). Some simply fall from a plant and began to grow where they land, (acorns). A few are even spread in the droppings of animals who eat the plant, many species of peppers, for example, are spread by rabbits. As a side note rabbits are not affected by capsaicin, which is the chemical that makes peppers taste hot.
Answer: there is really no particular way you are supposed to eat them, but most people that chew them regularly do this: 1. put some sunflower seeds in your mouth in your left cheek 2. suck all the juice out so they begin to soften 3. with them still in your left cheek move one over to your tongue and try to split it in half 4. once you have removed the seed, manage to put it under your tongue without using your fingers 5. spit out the shell and repeat the process hope this helped!!
OR you just crack the shell in your teeth then eat the inside...
