Sesam is the oldest species known to be cultivated for its oil, and has been domesticated for at least 3000 of years.

Myanmar is currently the biggest producer of sesam. The annual plant grows up to a height of 1 meter, is quite drought tolerant. After the pinky white flowers, small fruits are formed that burst open after ripening. The small seeds can vary from dark to lighter colors.
