This tropical plant is grown for its flavorful black seeds. Sesame grows best in hot weather and must have well-drained soil.
Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date. Transplant outside 1 month after last frost date. Or direct seed into warm, fertile, and well-drained soil. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest ripe seedpods when the tips split. Dry thoroughly on a tray or rack. Open pods, harvest seed, and refrigerate in an airtight container.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
