•American grown seeds

Sesamum indicum is a perennial plant that has been cultivated for thousands of years, producing small, flat, oily seeds. A variety of colors are found in sesame seeds, including black, brown, tan, gray, gold, and white. The black sesame seed is primarily produced in Asia, but they're gaining popularity worldwide. It is believed that black sesame seeds are healthier, which could explain this rise in popularity.
Lightly cover the seeds with sterilized, soil-less starter mix, and keep just moist until germination. Don’t keep the seeds in a highly damp environment, and be sure not to over-water the seedlings. Once they sprout, reduce watering to once a week until transplant time. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 70°F. Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last average frost date. Transplant under a cover for another 4-6 weeks after the last spring frost. Remove the cover in late spring, once the night time temperatures are consistently above 50°F.
