Plant: After last frost

Sesamum indicum

150 seeds/pack  |  110 days   |   Heirloom

Graceful plants produce multitudes of tan sesame seeds along tall stalks. The dried seeds taste nutty; they can be dry roasted and used whole in cooking or ground into a paste.  Beautiful white flowers are tubular. Loves heat! To harvest allow the stalks to dry then cut and shake into a bag or bin. We find the stalks dry at various time so it is necessary to do multiple harvests off your patch. Luckily, when the seed pods open they do so upwards so the seed doesn’t fall out.
