bot. Sesamum indicum L.
Sesame seeds are off-white when hulled, brownish to red and black when unhulled.
Sesame is the oldest plant cultivated for oil. And sesame seeds are considered to be one of the oldest spices in the world. The plant is an annual and grows up to 1 m tall. The seeds grow in a box which opens only when the seeds are mature. (Remember "Sesame, open up!" from the Thousand and One Nights?)
There is some debate about where the sesame comes from, as most members of the sesame family grow in Africa. Perhaps it was from Africa that sesame spread to India and America.
