Camelina (seeds)

(Camelina sativa); aka Gold-of-pleasure, False Flax, Leindotter, Siberian Oilseed; ~ 300 seeds (0.5 gram)

Camelina is another example of good things that come in small packages - once dismissed as a weed, the oil expressed from its tiny seeds is versatile with industrial, agricultural, medicinal, and culinary uses. Nutritionally, camelina seed oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids which is great for us but means it is also a valuable animal feed. Non-edible uses range from inclusion in cosmetics and soaps to as a biodiesel and lamp oil.

Camelina is well adapted to short-season northern gardens, germinating well in cool soils and tolerating frost. It prefers dry conditions.
