Sometimes referred to as “the caviar of lentils”, this little black variety combines a wonderfully earthy rich flavor with a delicate fine texture. Retaining its black color through cooking, it makes for a dramatic presentation on the plate. Spring sow. 100-120 days.
Care: Plant 3-4″ apart in rows 18-36″ apart in full sun. Harvest dry beans when 90% of leaves have yellowed and fallen off.
