Pumpkin Season

Pumpkin Season

Pumpkins, native to North America, have been grown here for almost 5,000 years. Pumpkin can be used in a variety of delicious recipes. And so can Pumpkin Seeds. Hummingbird has been working with Oregon farmers for many years to bring this unique crop to our area. These raw Organic Pumpkin Seeds grown in Oregon are dark green and have a fresh, slightly nutty flavor. This specialized hulless seed is the Styrian variety. Styria is located in Austria and is world-renowned for its excellent seed. We love this time of year when the fields turn orange with pumpkins. Help us celebrate Pumpkin season!

Awakened® Pumpkin Seeds

Organic Pumpkin Seeds

Hummingbird Pumpkin Seeds are raw, grown in Oregon, soaked overnight in water, which initiates germination and helps reduce enzyme inhibitors that make raw seeds hard to digest.

After soaking we rinse our pumpkin seeds in a very mild salt bath, using non-iodized Celtic Sea Salt®, and dehydrate at a low temperature until they reach the perfect crunchiness.

Enjoy our Organic Awakened® Pumpkin Seeds whenever you want a delicious, nutritious snack abounding with all the virtues of a good seed: protein, vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium, copper, zinc and more!  See webstore product page.
