The seeds are ovate, slightly flattened and somewhat thinner at the eye of the seed (hilum) than at the opposite end. The weight of the seeds is between 20 and 40 milligrams. The seed coat (testa) may be smooth or ribbed. Sesame seeds come in many colours depending on the cultivar harvested. The most traded variety of sesame is off-white coloured. Other common colours are buff, tan, gold, brown, reddish, gray and black.

My name is Obi Chiebuka Jonathan. I am 28 years old. I am from Anambra state in Nigeria. I come from a family of 10 and I am the last child. I have a first degree in Criminology and security studies from National Open University of Nigeria and I am currently studying psychology as a second degree at the University of Nicosia Cyprus. Currently I am on Erasmus mobility at the University of Bielefeld in Germany. I was raised by my parents who are both traders in stationery and office supplies which rejuvenated my passion for business because I spent most of my childhood assisting my parents in their trade and reading business books that they sold in their shops. This burning desire compelled me to register my first company(signor obi enterprise) which I used to get a distributor license for my parents trade and now I have a second company registered in Nigeria (Four roses Nigeria Limited) which I formed for the purpose of exportation and expanding my horizon globally.
