premature harvesting of poppies
    #4314512 - 06/19/05 07:37 PM (13 years, 3 days ago)

Is there a way to harvest the opium from a poppy before it's fully develloped? I think some seeds from pods I threw out in the yard last year germinated because I have a nice surprise 5-poppy garden. I think that once they get pods it will give them away right away though. I was thinking maybe I could boil all 5 plants w/ roots before the pods grow and maybe get 1 dose out of it? Or snip the immature pods as they grow and get a collection of those to make tea (I dunno, 6 immature pods for tea or something?)

Thanks for any help I can't wait to do my once-a-year summer poppy tea :grin:

A few poppy plants are unlikely to get you into legal trouble. And as mitchncast said, wait till maturity.

morphine content is highest after ten days of maturity

Leaves are most certainly active....it just takes a bit. Still I would certainly wait for the pods.
