Spices - Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds come from Sesame plant(SesamumIndicum). The plant grows to 50 to 100 cm tall and bears the Sesame fruit which is capsule-shaped and which varies from 2 to 8 cm in length. The fruit splits open along the septa to release the seeds naturally. This phenomenon has been immortalized in the Middle-Eastern epic, the Arabian Nights, with the famous phrase, "Open Sesame". The Sesame fruit pod splits open to release 50 to 100 tiny, oval, slightly-flattened, nutty-flavored seeds. Typically, the weight of each of the seeds is between 20mg to 40mg. These seeds come in a whole host of colors such as gray, brown, or black depending on the variety, but the most traded variety is off-white in color.

Major Producers: The largest producer of sesame seeds is Myanmar, followed by India, China, Ethiopia and Mexico. However, India ranks as the world's biggest exporter of sesame seeds.
