There are many different types of seeds. There are sunflower seeds, kigelia seeds, watermelon seeds, pumpkin seeds, and cucumber seeds. The ones we usually use as snacks are sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.
Even though seeds don’t have any especially tasty flavor, cracking seeds seems to have some kind of magic. As soon as you pick up one seed, it is very difficult to stop.
