Another beautiful, delicious and Easy to grow Lentil, Red Chief will shed their skins when sprouted to reveal a gorgeous bright orange color. These have become extremely rare in recent years. We hope to get our hands on a steady supply, but as with other such unique seeds, that is easier said than done. We Sproutpeople are persistent though, so we'll keep searching.

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!

Red Chief's have become rarer and rarer over the past decade. Get them when you can. As there was no 2013 harvest to speak of we won't have more until after the 2014 harvest. Hopefully by late this year. We have enough for our mixes but can't afford to sell then straight for now. Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.
