Main producing countries and Harvest time.
Czech Republic, Turkey and Australia are among the world’s top producers of poppy seeds.
The general harvest season for poppy seeds typically falls between late spring and early summer, which can vary depending on the specific region and climate. In many parts of the world, poppy seeds are harvested when the opium poppy plants (Papaver somniferum) have matured and the seed pods have dried out. This usually occurs about 3 to 4 months after the plants have been sown.
