The sunflower:

Originally, the sunflower comes from North America, where it was used for oil extraction three to four millennia ago. It was cultivated by the Indians long before the discovery of the "new world". It is believed that it came with the Spanish explorers to Europe, then spread over Italy, Germany and France. Today, it has become one of the most important oil crops in Russia and is grown in North, South America and Europe. The sunflower is a 1.5 to 2.5 m tall plant with a strong, branched, leafy, slightly shaggy stem. The sunflower is a prime example of phototropism. This refers to the curvature reactions that are based on growth and caused by light. Their leaves are heart-shaped, grow opposite to alternate, are above and below short hairy, long petiolate and strongly toothed on the edge. The flower heads of the sunflower are very large (10 to 40cm wide). Their tongue flowers are 5 to 10 cm long and yellow to orange coloured. In contrast, the tubular flow-ers are very numerous, brownish in colour and are visited by many insects. The fruits of the sunflower, from which the oil is extracted, are 0.8 to 1.7 cm long and 0.4 to 0.9 cm wide. After blooming, the flower basket often contains up to 2,000 seeds. Their colour is variable from black to whitish and black and white longitudinally striped. In addition to fatty oil (40 to 50%), the fruits contain protein (about 24%), sucrose, choline, beta-ine and tannins.
