Flavour of these dark black sesame seeds are much richer than the typical sesame seeds. Sesame prefers drought in order to produce pods as well as heat. Excellent plant for xeriscaping. These indeterminate plants will keep producing flowers and seed pods until the cool fall nights. Commonly used in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese dishes. Can be toasted, pressed for oil, or ground into tahini paste. Sow seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant under cover for 4 to 6 weeks after the last frost date. Remove the cover once the night time temperatures are consistently above 10°C (50°F).
Harvest: Hang to dry lat in growing season until the pods have cracked open. Once most of the pods have opened, bash them against the sides of a bucket to collect the dry seeds. A ten foot row will produce around 1 pound of sesame seeds.
75-110 Days to Harvest!
