FRENCH GREEN Lentils Seeds (Lens esculenta) Heirloom
Organic- Grown, harvested and processed without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, herbicides, GMO's, synthetic chemicals, growth agents, and free from irradiation and chemical sterilization.
A famous variety of small green lentils known for their earthy flavor. French green lentils, also known as Puy lentils were originally grown in Puy, France in the volcanic soil there, but are now also grown in Italy and North America. They are known for their rich peppery flavor and ability to retain their firmness after being cooked.
Planting suggestions: Sow in Spring. A cool season legume crop that finishes in the summer heat. Harvest when pods are rattling but before they crack open! Plants may still have some flowers on them with finished pods ready. Small pods contain 2 lentils each with 1 to 2 dozen pods per plant. Cut or pull up plants and dry them on tarps for about a week to dry completely. Thresh and winnow.
