The raw seeds of Golden Sesame resemble the toasted seeds of white sesame. Once they are fully dry they turn a nice golden brown colour. The flavour is somewhat milder than the Black Sesame kind, but still tasty and appealing. Use this variety to grind into tahini, or toast the seeds and sprinkle them over salads or sushi. The subtle crunch and flavour really elevates nearly any dish. Remember that the plants are heat and drought loving. Any steps that will add heat will improve productivity. Try growing them in a raised bed with no irrigation. In our field trials, black plastic mulch seemed to produce a good response. This plant is excellent for xeriscaping and for attracting pollinators.
Matures in 75-110 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
