A legume (nitrogen-fixing and soil improving) that grows on a straggling 12-18” vine that produces flat, two seeded pods. Bears over a very long season if given summer shade, perhaps under taller crops. Keep vines dry as possible to prevent disease. Rich meaty taste and fast-cooking. Cultivation is similar to peas, and they are cold hardy. Its flowers are a good source for honey. A major Mediterranean food crop and called “the poor man’s meat”, lentils are rich in protein and essential nutrients. They cook more quickly than most legumes. Nitrogen-fixer and improves your soil.
