Growing Black Sesame Sprouts

Growing Black Sesame Sprouts

Seed Storage

Sesame is best stored in a cool location - we keep ours in a freezer, but a refrigerator works well too. If you plan on storing these for more than 6 months you should use one of these cool locations. Also, Sesame is occasionally pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself more learned =:-}

Dry Sesame awaits Soaking.

They are way too sprouted, but that's just our opinion. What do we know? If you do go this far, you will likely see some Root Hairs - which is fine. Remember to taste your seeds/sprouts at every opportunity, to determine at what stage you like them best.
