About

Notes
As is common with black lentils - keep an eye open for hard seeds (those that do not soak up water) when you harvest your crop. They are fairly easy to spot as they remain as they look before you soaked them - small and very black. Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.
