  • It is widely naturalized in tropical regions around the world and is cultivated for its edible seeds, which grow in pods. World production in 2018 was 6 million tonnes, with SudanMyanmar, and India as the largest producers.

  • Sesame seed is one of the oldest oilseed crops known, domesticated well over 3000 years ago. 

  • Sesamum has many other species, most being wild and native to sub-Saharan Africa. S. indicum, the cultivated type, originated in India and is tolerant to drought-like conditions, growing where other crops fail.
