This page gives instructions on how to buy doomsday hybrid sunflower seeds from David's Garden Seeds. Sunflowers can be grow for oil, eating, bird food and many other applications. The two hybrid that David's Garden Seeds recommends is the Royal Hybrid and Black Oil Seeds. While the Royal is good for human consumption and bird feed, we have found the Black Oil Hybrid Sunflower which is good for bird feed as well as sunflower oil.

Royal Hybrid is a single head tall sunflower. High-yielding, early sunflower for delicious, gray-striped, edible seeds and bird food. Single stem/bloom plants are 7 feet in height with a flower diameter of 8 inches. Traditional-type hybrid variety with larger seeds. Blooms in about 70 days.
Sunflower Black Oil Seed 5000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Black Oil Sunflower is one of those classics that we all take for granted. A very popular sunflower for game birds that produces seed in 90-120 days. Grows 4-5 feet tall. Provides good cover for hunters while the small, black seed attract dove, quail and turkey. However, deer relish the young plants, so plots planted for birds must be protected. This is also an oil producing sunflower. With a manual or automatic oil presser, you can make your own sunflower oil. And with a bit of washing and drying, humans can eat them. They are full of vitamins E and B6. Blooms in May through October, annual, for best results plant in spring time when soil warms.
