The Botany of Sesame Seeds

What Are Sesame Seeds?

Sesame, or Sesasmum indicum, is a plant in the Pedaliaceae family. This plant is widely cultivated in regions such as Africa or Asia for its seeds. Used raw, roasted, or ground, sesame seeds are very present in European, Asian, and American cuisine.

Yuzu, a Revealing Citrus Fruit

Yuzu originates from Japan. Yuzu, also called Japanese citrus or Citrus reticulata, is a cross between wild mandarin and lemon. This citrus fruit, originating from Tibet and China, comes from a tree of the Rutaceae family, which can reach up to 4 meters in height and can withstand temperatures as low as -15°C.

Today, it is in Korea and Japan that it is most cultivated, where it is used in gastronomy, traditional medicine, but also in perfumery and cosmetics.

This Japanese fruit, resembling a small green lemon, is harvested in October in the Koshi prefecture in Japan.

Sesame Seeds and Yuzu Throughout History

The Origin of Sesame Seeds

Sesame seeds originated from East India. 3,000 years before Christ, the Chinese used sesame seeds as ink by transforming them into oil and then burning them to obtain a black color. Over time, sesame seeds have traversed the world to finally be used in kitchens in the form of oil, pastes, plain or flavored seeds.

Yuzu and Traditions

Yuzu is native to East Asia, particularly China and Tibet, where it grows wild. It was introduced to Japan during the Tang dynasty around 700 AD. In Japan and Korea, it is used in cooking, but also in traditional medicine, as its properties help fight fatigue and pain. In Japan, yuzu is also traditionally infused in baths to soften the skin and fight fatigue thanks to its invigorating effects.

In Korea, the wood of the tree in which yuzu grows is used to make musical instruments like the taepyeongso.

Humidity can cause the product to clump together without altering its organoleptic qualities.
