Sunflower was discovered in Kansas by Milo Gibson, circa 1970. The tree has proven to be strong, vigorous and resilient, tending to grow more wide than tall. Fruits are generally medium-large with some real jumbos tipping the scales at over a pound! Excellent, complex flavour is described by Blake Cothron as 'caramel-vanilla-nutty with a mild, fruity aroma.' Sunflower has stood the test of time and according to some sources it is practically self-fertile.
