No. The seeds can be dried and store in the refrigerator. They must be heated from the time of planting, when it is moistened slightly (don’t overheat) with water, to about 95 degrees (F), then stored in their green “pods”…which are basically just water and air. You can grow these at home without even having seeds.
My husband loves to grow sesame seeds but has them grown in the oven. Is this different than sunflower seedlings?
Yes, sesame seeds can be grown without any sun or heat. These seeds can be purchased at a store, but there is no right and wrong method of growing them. The same goes for sunflower seeds.
I’ve always known that sesame seeds were the perfect food for summer! Now that I have them growing, can I eat them in soups and snacks??
Sesame-seed and sunflower are very similar in texture. They are similar in taste. They taste like popcorn with a bit of honey on the inside and a bit of crunch on the outside. Sesame seeds also grow in the air and are often left uncovered in sunny areas, allowing good growth. Sunflowers (sow) are planted to the ground, and have their seedling roots exposed. In the meantime, sunflower seeds should be stored away from heat (or water, if the weather changes much).
Can sesame seeds be stored in the freezer?
Yes. Sesame seeds can be stored in the freezer as long as they have at least one freeze. This means you can store them in a freezer for a long period of time, such as several months.
Can sesame seeds be dried and can they be planted as seeds for summertime food?
Yes, sesame seeds can be dried. You can buy sesame seeds in a commercial dried form or can make your own using the recommended methods. They may grow even better in the freezer and can easily go a long time before needing to be re-seeded (this is a good technique as it ensures that they will maintain a long shelf life if placed under refrigeration).
