This heirloom variety of pumpkin seed is organically grown in the rolling hills of eastern Austria, named the Styrian region.
Organic Styrian pumpkin seeds contain 34% more dietary fibre, 29% more calcium, 27% more zinc and 28% more phosphorous than the more common,
and somewhat cheaper, lighter coloured organic Chinese pumpkin seeds.
