• The plant that produces the sesame seed, is an annual broadleaf plant that grows 5-6’ tall with bell shaped flowers that form at the leaf axil (where the stem and leaf meet).

• The plant is cultivated for its edible seeds which are also used to make an oil, as well as healing
properties.

• The seeds are used to top baked goods, milled into flour, crushed into a paste (tahini), pressed to produce oil, and used in sweet and savory dishes all over the world.

• Sesame seed colors include black, gray, red, and off-white to tan.

• Plant seeds when soil has warmed to approximately 80˚F in areas that receive 90-150 frost-free
days.
• Harvest as seeds ripen, dry and store out of direct light or in the freezer.
