Benne

TS280

Sesamum indicum. The light tan/white seed of this heirloom Benne is far more flavorful than modern sesame. Leaves can be used as soup greens; seeds used to flavor rice and baked goods, and can be made into a flour. Nutritionally, it is high in protein, contains no cholesterol and is rich in calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamins. Seed acquired from Anson Mills, which preserves/promotes heirloom Southern crops. The plants were highly productive at our Conservation Farm in Patagonia, AZ. Not from our Seed Bank Collection, but your purchase supports our conservation mission.

  • Approx 2g / 300 seeds per packet.
  • $3.95

I think every single seed from the packet has germinated and is working its way up in the world. Looking forward to seeing what they do next. And by the way, packaging and delivery was outstanding.
