Sesame - Kingoma
3.75 8.5 $3.00 - $8.50
A tan variety, good for all edible uses; can also be pressed into oil. Earlier to mature than many sesame varieties but still recommended to be grown in a hoophouse in our climate. Interesting 3' tall plants, with trumpet flowers and fat seed pods. When dry, seeds shake right out of the pods by turning the plants upside down ("open sesame"). Prefers rich soil and extra calcium. Start indoors and transplant when weather is reliably warm.
