Open (my mind,) sesame

I was eating a cheeseburger from a burger place today, and it (the burger) had a sesame seed bun. I realized that I have always taken sesame seeds for granted, in the sense that I've just always irrationally believed that they just sort of come from out of nowhere.

So I began to wonder, is there a sesame flower? A sesame tree with a sesame fruit? Where do these seeds come from, and what would they grow into were it not for the fact that they were diverted to my hamburger bun?

Thanks for the homework assignment...next time I eat a burger I'll take a moment to appreciate the nutty, nutrient rich goodness that is the Sesamum indicum
