Sesame seeds are an excellent source of manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and zinc, and a very good source of vitamin B1 (
thiamin) and dietary fiber. The nutrients found in sesame seeds may offer cardiovascular benefits, reduce inflammation in those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, support respiratory health, offer protection against colon cancer, osteoporosis and other conditions.

How to grow:
1. Lay a 2-inch layer of compost over a well-drained garden bed that receives full sunlight. Work the compost into the top 6 inches of soil to add organic matter and nutrients. Apply a 5-10-10 analysis or other low-nitrogen fertilizer over the bed prior to planting, following the application rate recommended on the package.

2. Water the garden bed until it is evenly moist but not soggy. Water in the morning then plant the seeds two or three hours later so that any excess moisture has time to drain from the bed.

3. Sow sesame seeds ½ inch deep, spacing the seeds 6 inches apart in rows. Space the rows 2 feet apart.

4. Mist the bed with water when the top 1 inch of soil begins to feel dry, usually one to two times a week. Sesame seeds will germinate in approximately seven to 14 days.

Indoor Sowing
5. Fill individual seed pots with potting mix. Water the mix until it is evenly moist throughout but not soggy.

6. Sow two sesame seeds per pot, planting them ½ inch deep. Cover the pot with a plastic bag, which preserves soil moisture during germination, then place the pots in a 75 to 80 degree Fahrenheit room to germinate.

7. Remove the plastic bag when sprouts appear. Place the sesame seedlings in a warm, sunny window and water when the soil begins to dry, usually once every three to five days.

8. Transplant the seedlings out to the garden bed once the soil warms up to 70 F. Day time temperatures should be above 75 F with night temperatures no lower than 50 F. Transplanting two weeks after the last spring frost is advisable for most areas.
