>Best poppies for seed yield (excerpt) Basically 2 major varieties: The one is the "Album" and the other is the "Nigrum".  If the seed is a hard grey-blue then it is always Nigrum-dominated and if the color is different  then it is always Album-dominated. If the flower has a purple heart then it is Nigrum-dominated and if it has other colors (especially white!) it is an Album. > Nigrum is usually used for cooking, Album tends to have bigger capsules and tend to be used for Opium production.
