"Seeds" IS the general name for all different kinds of seeds.

Each different kind of seed will have a particular name: like "Sunflower seeds" as you mentioned. But the general category is just "seeds".

Squash and pumpkin seeds . . . and they're edible, too (particularly good prepared with oil and seasoning, roasted in the oven).

Idiom: off/out of (one's) gourd (Slang): Very foolish; crazy. Are you all out of your gourd?

Are you out of your mind? If you look for "gourd pictures" you'll find out what I mean: there are plenty of varieties, most of them unedible. We actually use them a lot around here to make a cuia, cabaça or calabaza: and drink "mate", "tererê" or "chimarrão" on them, all variants of an infusion of Ilex paraguariensis. That's the gaucho's way from Argentina, Uruguai, Paraguai and south of Brazil.

The seeds of edible squashes (here up norteamericano way, at least) are also edible. Many people scoop them out and discard them before roasting or baking the squash, which is a shame, since the seeds make a good and nourishing snack.
