Planting And Care
Sesame is best started indoors 4 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Seeds should be sown in a lightweight potting medium, approximately 1/4″ or less beneath the surface of the soil. Keep moist. Seeds can be collected once most of the seed pods have turned green.
Plant sesame in full sunlight spaced 2-3 feet apart to allow healthy development. Once established, sesame can thrive even in high temperatures with little water. Flowers will eventually develop into dozens of elongated seed pods. Seeds are ready to be harvested when these pods turn brown and begin to open.
