Sesame seed naturally occurs in a variety of colors, including black. The seed has a delicate, nutty taste, which is featured in many traditional Middle Eastern foods such as tahini and halvah.

The phrase “open sesame” spoke in the classic tale of Arabian Nights is a reference to the way the seed appears to burst open at maturity.

Sesame is a flowering annual that is widely naturalized and cultivated in tropical regions throughout Asia and the Middle East. It is one of the oldest oilseed crops, with domestication dating to about 3,000 years ago in China.

The dried seed is a rich source of fatty acids, including oleic acid and linoleic acid, as well as iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Black sesame seeds are the same as white sesame seeds except that the hull is left intact.
