Low growing bush produces brown lentils.
The most common lentil you see in stores.
Great for soup.
BOTANICAL NAME: Lens culinaris
Hardy plants but cannot take heat, so plant as early as the soil can be worked. Plant 4" apart into non-acid, well-drained soil. Plant seed ¼" deep and be sure to keep soil cool and moist. Some fertilizer helps get started. Soak seed before planting and preferably inoculate. Pick, but do not tear, all ripe pods so more will form. When pods are yellow and dry, hang vines undercover to finish drying if there is chance of rain. Thresh out and store when seeds are totally dry.
