Smallest sunflower... ever.

The new sunflower seems to be very tiny. It's about 3 in diameter. I started this plant in a 6 pack seed container and didn't transplant it very quickly. It was very root bound. I think it might have stunted it's growth. It's still very pretty. I hope the honey bees will like it. I want to have at least one sample for the Great Sunflower Project.

Here are the Black Hungarian's ready to be dried.

After several tens of hours in the food dehydrator they look like peels from an apple. They still needs some more time before they will be ready for making into paprika powder.
