HEIRLOOM If we can grow our own sesame seeds, you can, too!
Sesame is remarkably easy to grow annual, her gorgeous 3+ foot flower stalks stacked with beautiful foxglove-like blossoms that glow rose-pink. Organic Black and Tan Sesame will thrive in full sun, tolerant of both drought & poor soils, blossoming July through frost to share her abundance of delicious sesame seeds. The unique seed heads of sesame are fascinating and absolutely breathtaking; we actually have a dry bouquet of sesame in a vase all winter in our home! Sesame seeds are easy to harvest and clean using simple tools like fans, colanders and screens you may have around your house.
When to sow (Transplant Only): Sow 2 seeds per cell 4 weeks before last frost (at Fruition we use soil blocks).
Keep soil surface moist until emergence. Thin to 1 seedling per cell & transplant into larger containers when first true leaves emerge. Harden off & transplant out after frost danger.
Seeding Depth: 1/8 inch
Days to Germination: 6-8 days at 75F
Full Sun Plant spacing after thinning: 1 foot
Days to Harvest: 65 days to flower, 90 days to seed
Harvest: Collect seed once golden pods begin to break open.
Fruition’s free course shares 100+ video tutorials to surround you with abundance for seasons to come.
We look so forward to joining you on the journey!
