About

Another in our beautiful, delicious and easy to grow line of Lentils, Crimson Lentils are smaller and plumper and of a darker orange than Red Chief. Exceptionally beautiful, Crimsons are our favorite Lentil Sprout to cook with.

Flavor
Crimsons are plump and rich - they are my favorite lentil of all. Sweet and in some way peppery, crunchy little things that do great with sweet or savory dressings, or cooked as soup. Try with our mango dressing!

Notes

For a few years now lentil crops have been harder to get. Crop failure due to weather conditions and supply constraints are the big issues. Our current lot of Crimson Lentils sprouts wonderfully and tastes fantastic. The one caveat is that there are a very small amount of grains mixed in. These grains remain hard - even after soaking - or cooking. So remove those before you soak or cook.

Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.
